Delight drop-in guests with a fruity and spicy cheese spread. It goes from start to finish in 15 minutes.
cup peach or apricot preserves
red jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped
green jalapeño chile, seeded, finely chopped
package (8 oz) cream cheese, cut in half
Assorted crackers and/or cocktail pumpernickel or rye bread
In small bowl, mix preserves and chiles. On small serving plate, place blocks of cream cheese. Spoon preserves mixture over cheese.
Serve with crackers or cocktail bread.
You could use one whole red or one whole green jalapeño chile, but the combination of the red and green is very attractive.
The remaining chiles will keep in the refrigerator for several days. Dice a little into taco meat or almost any casserole to add a bit of flavor and heat.
