Spicy Corn Dip-add a small jar of pimentos and a little paprika for better visual appeal. When I made this last summer I opted to make it less spicy and left out the 3 jalapenos. It's really easy to tweak to your personal taste!
Caramel Pecan Cheese Dip - (This seems too sweet for an appetizer, but for a snack it might work nicely. Or swish cut apples in a little lemon juice instead of including in the recipe and dip them for dessert, maybe also some sweet crackers.
