‘Tis the season for hosting parties. While sometimes that can be a bit stressful, the experts at Cook’s Illustrated have come out with this book of 75 “only the best” appetizer recipes to reduce some of the stress. All-Time Best Appetizers Cookbook makes it easy to create a spread with everything from things that can be dipped, spread, or eaten by the handful to two-bite treats. These Beef and Bean Taquitos with Avocado Sauce are great for any get together…or for a “finger food” dinner. To find out more about other appetizers and treats for any occasion, go to Cook’s Illustrated’s website.

From the authors: “why this recipe works – Making crunchy, golden taquitos is easy for restaurant cooks with access to a deep-fryer; our goal was to make them foolproof for home cooks, too. Adding mashed pinto beans to a seasoned ground beef filling and rolling the taquitos tightly helped the filling hold together. Sealing the edge with egg wash offered extra insurance, and frying in a mere cup of oil prevented the taquitos from unrolling as they cooked.”
