I am so excited that our fans chose this week’s secret ingredient for Kitchen Psycho! It took me a few days to decide what I wanted to make, but when I did, I went on a cooking spree and made it all in one day. This is the appetizer that I came up with; it’s slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and completely delicious!
SWEET AND SPICY CRANBERRY CHEESE SPREAD
1 (8 oz) block of cream cheese, softened
¼ cup jalapeno pepper jelly
4-5 small green onions, chopped
1/4-1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4-1/2 cup dried cranberries
Salt and pepper, to taste
Combine the cream cheese, pepper jelly, green onions, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl and mix until well combined with a mixer. Stir in the pecans and cranberries. Serve with toast or crackers.
