{Party Appetizer} Jalapeño Pimento Cups!

Delicious Jalapeno Pimento Cups, perfect party appetizer!

One of my favorite things about running a website devoted to parties & entertaining is when I have the opportunity to share a party recipe with you! Having an “arsenal” of appetizer and other party-ready recipes is definitely a great idea for any hostess. So when Kettle Chips asked me to come up with a recipe using one of their delicious flavored kettle chips, I was super excited to get in the kitchen. I decided to give an old favorite a new twist.

My Mom always served pimento cups at her parties when I was growing up. It’s still one of her favorite mini-eats to this day. What I really love about incorporating Kettle Chips into any recipe (or enjoying right out of the bag) is that they use only real, all-natural ingredients. They are also the first potato chip to be verified by the NonGMO Project.

Delicious Jalapeno Pimento Cups, perfect party appetizer! The recipe is super easy and adaptable. Kettle Chips has over 20 flavors (CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FLAVORS) ! I chose jalapeno for a little “bite” but any of the flavors would be a delicious choice! The chips are crushed up and added to the pimento cups before baking. It gives them a big crunch and an extra boost of flavor. They’re easy to “pop in youth mouth” at parties! What I also love is that the ingredients are easy to “have on hand” for last minute guests.
