  • 3 Place 1 cup chopped cheese, the cream cheese, artichoke hearts, 3 tablespoons of the pine nuts and the basil in food processor. Cover and process using quick on-and-off motions until well mixed.
  • 4 Pack mixture into cheese shell.
  • 5 Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon pine nuts; press lightly. Cover and refrigerate about 3 hours or until filling is firm.
  • 6 Cut into thin wedges. Serve with crackers.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Chihuahua cheese is an exceptional cheese that originated from Mexico. Its texture is perfect for blending into a smooth and creamy dip.

This easy yet impressive, do-ahead appetizer is perfect to take with you when you're supposed to bring something for nibbling. When you reach your destination, arrange the filled chilled cheese shell on a platter with crackers surrounding it.

Toast pine nuts by placing in a dry skillet and cooking over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden and fragrant. You’ll have perfectly toasted pine nuts in about 5 minutes.
