Super Quick Salsa Bites Appetizer Recipe
Shredded Mexican blend cheese
Lay out the Triscuit in a single layer on a baking sheet. On each, place a dollop of refried beans, followed by a dab of salsa. (You don’t need much salsa since the crackers are so flavorful.) Top each with shredded cheese and a sprinkle of cilantro (optional). Place under broiler until cheese is melted.
See, isn’t that easy!! To make party time even simpler, you can assemble the bites ahead of time and keep in the fridge until your guests arrive. At that time, just take them out and pop in the oven!
