I have to confess, I love potluck dinner parties. I also love sampling the wonderful variety of homemade goodies brought by other guests. Potlucks are such a great idea if you are hosting a gathering and don’t have time to cook. Everyone pitches in and the table is quickly filled with delectable party favorites. It’s a win-win for everyone.
One of my go-to potluck party recipes is the Chorizo Cheese Biscuit Bites. These party bites are great for all kinds of party gatherings. The spicy meat and cheese mixed with buttery and flaky biscuits are perfect for everyone's taste buds. The heat from the chorizo goes deliciously well with the cooling Southwestern sauce. What are you waiting for? Let's get cooking!
