Appetizer Party Recipes Made With Cream Cheese

I love appetizer party recipes. I'm the kind of person who wishes the cocktail hour would not stop! Are you the same? Then your looking for appetizer party recipes.

The appetizer recipes on this page are all going to be made with cream cheese, and they are so easy to make it's almost embarrassing...but that's not going to stop me from using them because they really taste good.

All of these recipes can be served with tortilla chips, bagel crisps, pita bread or crackers.

My favorite is tortilla chips.

Easy Party Dip Recipes

These easy appetizer party recipes are made with cream cheese. This kind of soft cheese is a wonderful base ingredient for a dip recipe! You can use a bar of cream cheese or the whipped kind. If I am making dip for myself I use the whipped. If I am making larger amounts for a party I use the stick variety, simply because the stick is much cheaper than the whipped.



When you do buy the whipped cream cheese it's easy enough to mix the ingredients together by hand. If you've decided to use the bar use a mixer or a food processor to mix your ingredients.

#1 The Easiest Dip Recipe Ever

The first easy party dip recipe I have is so simple, there are only two ingredients:

  • 8 ounces of softened cream cheese or 1container
  • 1 jar of salsa



For a party I would buy the cream cheese in a bar, simply because it is much cheaper.

The recipe is one bar of cream cheese per jar of salsa. So about equal measures of both ingredients. Just mix it well and serve with some tortilla chips. Choose a salsa that you like and your set. I tried a black bean salsa the last time, and it was good!
