If your New Year's resolution was to make more crowd-pleasing dishes, well, you're in luck.

We're back with a shiny new update on our latest contest, The Recipe You're Asked to Bring to Every Gathering. Last time we checked in, we were sharing five dynamite dishes for any event.

Now, we're proud to present the top two contenders: a creamy, tangy, pantry-friendly dip that comes together faster than you can say "we have leftover Ruffles," and a gang of extra-delicious Swedish meatballs that beg to be speared with a toothpick and popped into your mouth.

After leaving ample congrats in the comments for swedishturkey and Jenny, go check out both recipes. Then head over to our contest page to vote. You have from now until Jan. 8 at 12 p.m. EST to cast your click. On Jan. 9, we’ll shout the winner from the rooftops.
