Two Easy and Delicious Holiday Appetizer Ideas

The Holidays are almost here which means it’s time to start getting the creative juices flowing for the perfect menu. Most important it’s time to start thinking of ways you can blow your guests away with delicious and easy recipes.
No matter what type of meal you’ll be serving it’s important to come up with a menu that is delicious yet stress free. That’s why when I’m planning my holidays I make sure and stock up on delicious RITZ Crackers at Walmart. 


Walmart has become my go to when getting everything I need for the holidays. They have easy and convenient ways to shop in-store to Walmart online grocery.
So whether you need to pick up one thing or a cart full of items you’ll be able to do it conveniently.
Every Christmas my husband and I combine our two cultures into one big event. So it’s important for me to combine the flavors of our two cultures into the dishes I create.
One way I love to start the night off is with appetizers. I used delicious RITZ crackers as my base for the following recipes, which you can grab Family Size RITZ Crackers at Walmart on Rollback for $2.98.

The holidays are a time when I bring all the flavors I love into many dishes to create some masterpieces. I love to search high and low for delicious combinations that are unique yet easy to create. 
One of my favorite flavors growing up was the Elena Ruz sandwich a Cuban favorite that combines cream cheese, turkey and strawberry jelly. That’s why I decided to bring that part of my culture to the appetizer menu with a delicious Elena Ruz Canape.

What you will need to make the Elena Ruz canape:

Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Thin Deli Sliced turkey
Strawberry Jelly

How to make the Elena Ruz canape:

Start with the RITZ cracker as a base and spread the cream cheese on it. 

Add the deli slice 
and use a piping bag to deliver a dot of strawberry jelly. Simple, delicious and so easy to make.

This delicious appetizer is as unique as it is delicious. Most important it’s so easy to make. I can replicate the delicious buttery flavor with a crisp that makes the combination of flavors so divine.
My other Appetizer dish is a tasty symphony of flavors with a Prosciutto & Fig Canape. 

This magical little treat brings together some salty,sweet and crunchy flavors that will also be a huge hit. 

What you  will need to make the Prosciutto & Fig Canape:

Arugula washed and cut in half.

How to make a Prosciutto & Fig Canape:

Then add two arugula leaves that have been cut in half.

Finally, top with a dollop of fig jam

    These sound delicious. We all like Ritz crackers and are always looking for new ways to eat them. We like dips, cheeses and meats with them too.
