Thank you Dare Crackers for sponsoring this post. Get summer party ready with Dare Crackers – your friends will thank you!
Summer time is the best, isn’t it? I love waking up to sunshine and being able to be outside for most, if not all of the day.
Our home has a large sunporch and it is the best place to hang out in the summer. It is a cozy area with comfy chairs, pillows, quilts (for cooler evenings) and the best part is that it is right next to the grilling area!
Grilling happens often in my home. We love to throw pretty much anything on the grill. Heck, I am so crazy about grilling that I even grill when there is snow on the ground.
Having friends over for a great meal is the best. I love chatting with my friends and watching their kids play games in the back yard. We often will play board games or card games while waiting on the main dish to be ready.
Of course, all of this chatting or game playing makes a person hungry (at least it does me!). I always want to make sure my family and my company have something great to snack on while waiting for the main course.
Cheese and crackers are one of the first things I put out for guest to snack on. I like to use the best crackers I can find. I have been using Dare Crackers for years and find they are the best cracker for any topping that I make. Dare Crackers have so many varieties of crackers, I know I can find one that will be perfect for any topping.
I created a new spread recipe that my loves. Jalapeño Cheese Spread is easy to make and is perfect on top of crackers. My family loves to eat foods with a little heat. I have grilled jalapeños for this spread, but this time, I decided to go with chopped jalapeños.
If you want to make this spread and have a little time, grill the peppers is best.
How to make Jalapeño Cheese Spread – don’t worry, it is easy!
- 3 jalapeños, sliced open and seeded
- 1 package cream cheese
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 cup grated Mexican cheese blend
- Slice jalapeños open, remove stem and seeds. Then chop.
- Beat cream cheese and garlic until blended.
- Add jalapeño, cheese and blend.
I am sure your family will love this recipe. So will your company. Jalapeño Cheese Spread will be one of the recipes that is most requested for your next get together.
You can make this recipe in the morning. Remember, the longer it sits the hotter it will get. The juice from the jalapeño will spread throughout the cheese mixture. I love it hot, but you and your family may not.
