[ 0 ] April 19, 2021 |

Appetizers have become one of the first casualties of the modern, fast way of life. This type of food brings so much value to a meal that it’s well worth the effort. Speaking of which, not all appetizers are difficult to make. In fact, most of them are rather easily prepared. Here are our top 4 four picks for this category. 

15 Minute Salsa Dip

We start our list of appetizers with an awesome dip that can be prepared in minutes. Salsa is the absolute best choice for hot summer days and evenings. Its fresh, tangy flavor will wake up your taste buds better than anything else. The best thing about salsa is that you can serve it as an appetizer for Mexican food, but also any other cuisine. It simply works well in any situation. 

To make a 15-minute salsa dip, you’ll need chopped tomatoes, a can of tomato sauce, a can of tomato paste, several ball peppers, a yellow onion, green bell peppers, some spicy jalapeños, garlic, apple cider, salt, and cumin to taste. 

Salsa is super easy to prepare. All you need to do is dice all the ingredients, add everything to a pot, and stir until it’s all combined nicely. Serve with chips or tortillas. 

Vegetable Soup

When cool weather sets in, our organism starts asking for hot, cooked foods. There’s no better appetizer that matches this description than the Instant Pot vegetable soup, as it’s a simple soup to make as you only need the basic veggies. Which ones you’ll use is a matter of your taste. Tomatoes, corn, potatoes, and beans all work well. Add some tomato sauce and use chicken/beef stock for best results. Cook until all ingredients are cooked thoroughly.

Deviled Eggs 

Let’s travel from Tex-Mex to mainland Europe, where we’ll find deviled eggs. This incredibly simple recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and is a must-have appetizer for formal parties. 

The best thing about deviled eggs is how easy they are to prepare. You’ll need eggs, mayonnaise, some olive oil, pepper, paprika, and salt. Boil your eggs and let them cool. Peel the shell, cut the eggs in perfect halves and remove the yolk. Combine the yolk with mayo, salt, pepper, olive oil, and paprika, and mash until you get a uniform paste. Then fill each egg white half with the mix. 

French Fries 

French fries are the staple of western cuisine, and you just can’t go wrong with them as an appetizer. To prepare french fries, simply get your favorite potato, slice it into fries and then boil until the outside is nice and soft. 

Make sure not to completely boil the fries as they will fall apart. Let the boiled fries dry and cool down for a moment while your oil heats up. Fry in small batches until golden brown. Salt to taste and serve with ketchup or any other condiment you prefer.

Appetizers Are Worth the Effort

Taking a few minutes to prepare an awesome appetizer will give your entire meal a whole new dimension of taste. Food tastes different when you wake up the taste buds. The effort is well worth the result.
