Having a party during the summertime is always so much fun! We have 2 summer birthdays in our house, so we love to throw get-togethers with our friends and family. We also have plenty of impromptu parties at our house due to my husband inviting people over without giving me much planning or notification. Sound familiar ladies? This happens all the time at our house!
For the times that I am looking for something extremely tasty, yet quick to make for parties, I choose Farm Rich Queso Cheese Bites. They offer just the right amount of spice that I’m looking for in a quick appetizer. A serving size is 180 calories and has 0 trans fat. These are definitely something that I can work into my diet. They are also a great source of calcium.
During our impromptu parties, I usually don’t get the time to set out much decor, or plan out a menu, so I will serve these as we play cards and board games. My husband isn’t into games near as much as I am, so naturally when people come over, I break out the games because it is usually the only time I get a chance to play! These queso cheese bites are the perfect snack to go along with game night. They area wonderful combination of creamy on the inside and crunchy on the outside and you can pop them in your mouth in one bite, which keeps your hands clean during game play. I like to serve them along with a vegetable tray and some dip.
If we are having a planned summer party, I usually make these and set them in a lined basket and just take them outside with us. We like outside parties during the summer and these snacks are portable! Of course, it helps that they get eaten so quickly that you don’t even have to worry about them sitting out for too long (or at least we don’t at our house). We love to light up the tiki torches and sit around the fire pit during the summer and snack and reminisce.
