With a bit of planning, you can create affordable, multi-course party recipes

Getting together with friends and family over the holidays, to enjoy evenings filled with good conversation and the traditional dishes of your home-country is second nature to you. But does hosting your own party mean you have to spend a lot of money on food? Definitely not! With a bit of planning, you can create fabulous party recipes that won’t break the bank. Here are some party recipe ideas.

Tacos for appetizers. Tortillas are a practical and inexpensive party recipe option, and just a few can go long way. For example, to make the best Ground Beef Tacos all you need is meat, onions, cilantro, a few tortillas and the authentic taste of Knorr® Beef flavor Bouillon . In a short time you’ll have an inexpensive, irresistible appetizer.

Casserole for the main course. Pick a simple dish with inexpensive ingredients, like this Easy Cheesy Vegetable Casserole that has a touch of the irresistibly good Country Crock® Spread . This recipe is not only easy to prepare, it also goes a long way when extra guests show up unexpectedly. Pair your main course with an Easy Tuna Ceviche, wrapped in lettuce leaves and loaded with the authentic flavor of Knorr® Chicken Flavor Bouillon .

Cake for dessert. Finish your party recipes on a sweet note with this Super-Moist Pumpkin Spice Cake . You can pair the cake with a traditional Rice Pudding , made with the delicious flavor of Country Crock® Calcium Plus Vitamin D Spread . They’re both affordable desserts that your guests will love.

Something creamy to drink. After dinner, it’s nice to offer your guests something to drink. Make something sweet and simple like Creamy Tea & Mango made with Lipton® Lemon Sweetened Iced Tea Mix . As a second choice, offer Hot Chai-Style Green Tea made with Lipton® Green Tea Bags , perfect for chilly nights.
