Baked Chicken Meatball Cheese Dip for a quick appetizer recipe that will impress all guests. In partnership with al fresco.
I think it’s safe to say that we have finally received our winter weather. Snow flurries have made appearances the past two days and most places in Texas have snow on the ground. Ironic that the southern areas are receiving more than the northern region. That means it is time to sit by the fire and enjoy the warm temperature indoors.
Earlier on in the week, I shared my new recipe for this Apple Cider Moscow Mule. It’s the perfect holiday beverage and it’s great to sip on while sitting by that fire.
Now it’s time for me to focus your attention on an easy appetizer dish that everyone will love. Did I mention it is easy to make with minimal cleanup? You start out with the cheese base by adding cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and mayonnaise. Next, you incorporate the diced tomatoes and then you are ready to add to a baking dish. Top it off with al fresco chicken meatballs (mine were the tomato and basil flavor) and then pop it into the oven. Baking time is less than 30 minutes! Serve it with crackers, chips, or grab a spoon because you won’t get enough of this dip.
