Baby, it is cold outside but it doesn’t phase those of us that love to party! For many, this time of the year is Mardi Gras time and for lots of folks, it is all about the Superbowl. Whether you are hosting a party or tailgating, the Service League cookbooks are full of great recipes that taste great, look super, and are easy to prepare! The newest cookbook, Steel Magnolias in the Kitchen includes sixty-nine appetizers and beverage recipes! The recipe pictured here is Salsa Cheese Cake, on page 28. Not only does it make a beautiful presentation, it is absolutely delicious. With just the right combination of Parmesan and Cream Cheese, it is enhanced with the addition of green onions, bell peppers, green chilis, salsa, cilantro and, of course, your favorite southwest seasonings. It can also be topped with sour cream and/or guacamole. It is great without though too! Thanks to Amy Fisher for sharing this great appetizer! If you have suggestions or comments about ways you “customize” this dish, please share with us.
