Easy Party Appetizer Recipe

I am constantly looking for party recipes to add to my file and not necessarily one made from scratch....I like to cheat a little if I can, just to make a party, or a "pre-party" in this case,  go as seamlessly as possible and without any stress.

I LOVE Artichoke Jalapeno Dip.  I also love pesto.  My neighbor, Bobby, grows a gigantic garden at his place and makes the BEST homemade pesto that I have ever had.  It's like a pesto concentrate where you can add some mayo and spread it on french bread and toast. 

Or, add it to your favorite store-bought Artichoke Jalapeno Dip, bake and devour. 






We had a pre-party cocktail hour at our house the other night and I tried adding this pesto concentrate to my favorite store bought Artichoke Jalapeno Dip.  Just mix together in a bowl, transfer to a baking dish and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or so.

I can eat the entire dish with a loaf of french bread....so good.



















The dip was a hit and made for a good absorber prior to the birthday party we were to attend.
