Tricia’s Table

Here are some cheery holiday recipes that will help make you and your guests jolly!

We’ll start with a simple, but tasty appetizer to warm everyone up, and it calls for only six ingredients, and a small or medium size cooker.

Hot Cheesy Chicken Dip
2-13 ounce cans of Swanson Chicken breast meat
1-16 ounce jar of salsa
½ packet taco seasoning
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can of chopped black olives
Drain chicken very well and shred with fork right into the slow cooker.
Add and mix together remaining ingredients.
Heat in slow cooker until cheese is melted. Serve hot with tortilla chips.


Time for a beverage! Festive Christmas cocktails always add to the cheery atmosphere. This is a great time of year for a good old fashioned, blended, creamy drink that features tequila or rum cream liqueur and cinnamon.
The Snowball
