Tis the season for holiday parties! Sure, the star of your holiday meal – the turkey or ham – is important, but don’t forget about the supporting cast of food items, including appetizers!
These small-bites will keep your guests happy and satisfied until the main meal is served. Best of all, these holiday appetizer recipes include some of our favorite ingredients – Parkers Farm peanut butter and salsa!
One of our favorite dips incorporates our two favorite ingredients—salsa and peanut butter!

All you have to do to perfect this dip is microwave your peanut butter for about 30 seconds and stir in the salsa and cilantro. The red pepper and tortilla chips both taste great with this dip.
