Surprise! These Snacks Are Stuffed    

Inside each of these easy-to-eat bites is a bit of a surprise. From falafel balls stuffed with feta and tomato to portobello mushrooms overflowing with cheese, these recipes really stuff all the flavor they can into one bite.

Stuffed Falafel Balls

Using falafel mix keeps the shopping list for these cheesy stuffed appetizers short. The unexpected addition of Parmesan maximizes flavor. You can find tahini, a paste made from sesame seeds, at specialty food stores and many supermarkets.

Portobello Mushroom Pizza Bites

Reimagine and supersize stuffed mushrooms with this flavor-packed portobello version. Sun-dried tomatoes (we especially love the ones packed in oil) add perfect pizza flavor. And, like the mushrooms, they're high in umami, giving this vegetarian dish a satisfying meaty savoriness.

Cheesy Stuffed Taco Meatballs

The secret ingredient in these apps is a link of fresh chorizo — the spicy Mexican pork sausage (not to be confused with the cured Spanish kind). It does double duty here, adding a zesty taco kick and keeping the meatballs extra moist.
