Everyone is gearing up and preparing for New Year’s parties, which makes party appetizers the perfect choice for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

We put the Culinary Content Network to the test to come up with a few of their favorite comfort food recipes, and here are some of the highlights:

  • Kit from The Kittchen fills jalapeño poppers with mashed potatoes for a new take on the classic party appetizer.
  • Abbe from This is How I Cook brings us store-bought kettle chips spruced up with a spicy, garlicky seasoning mix.
  • This week’s winner comes from Simi at Turmeric N’ Spice, who brings us a dangerously easy take on cheesy garlic bread.

All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
