Our Top 10 Snack Recipes of 2016
Have you ever had one of those weeks when life is more about snacks than actual meals? Maybe you’re super busy at work or school, or maybe smaller, lighter bites are more of what you’re craving right now. Either way, we featured some truly delicious and snackable recipes in 2016. Here are 10 of our most popular, including Cheetos-style chickpeas and the delectable, munchable pinwheel wraps pictured above.
But wait. Maybe you don’t want simple, plain popcorn. Maybe you want honey-brown butter, or chili-cheese popcorn. Maybe dill pickle-flavored popcorn makes you sit up and grin. Whatever your preference, one of these five flavors (matcha, chocolate, and cookies and cream are also featured) is sure to hit the spot.
This is part of our vegan snack series, but of course you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy these delightful salty, puckery oven-baked potatoes. Cut into thick slices, the potatoes are brined in vinegar and then baked in the oven until crispy. Shower on some chives and hold back the crowds! Delicious!
Wrapping dough around a well-seasoned filling and popping it into a steamer, deep frier, or oven is how the whole world makes their snacks. Empanadas are of the oven variety, and this chicken version is top-notch. The filing is moist from the dark-meat chicken and packed full of flavor from cumin, paprika and garlic, and the dough bakes golden-brown and tender.
Avocado is a heavenly fruit. Rich and creamy and full of goodness, it melts in your mouth and makes almost everything it touches better. Here we coat chunky slices in crispy breadcrumbs and bake them in the oven, serving them warm with an assortment of dipping sauces. No muss, no fuss, and lots and lots of yummy!
