What is your absolute favorite appetizer recipe?

I have a few of my favorites but am looking for some more to add to my arsenal. Please tell me your absolute favorite appetizer, anything from dips to finger foods. I browse around online and like trying new recipes but the best ones are the ones that people stick to and are asked to bring to get togethers. Thanks!!

  • Bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed jalapenos.
    Slice your jalapenos in half, fill with your choice of cheese, wrap with bacon and bake at 375 until bacon is as crisp as you like it.
