QUICK EASY DIPS/SPREADS

JALEPENO DIP

Place a block of cream cheese in a bowl.
Chop 1/3 cup of jalepeno peppers (I use Hot Vlasic)and spread on the top and sides of the cream cheese.
Allow to soften and serve with chips as a dip or spread with crackers.

(This is good served right away or you can make it in advance and it is even better the next day.)

CRAB DIP

Place a block of cream cheese in a bowl. Use the back of a spoon to form a shallow dip in the top of the block of cheese.
Empty small can of chopped crab meat into the shallow dip on the cheese and pack lightly. (Be sure the crab meat is well drained.)
Pour small bottle of cocktail seafood sauce over crab meat and cream cheese.
Allow cheese to soften and serve dip with chips or spread on crackers.

I think this is best consumed the the same day.

  1. Yum. I also like the cream cheese block covered with Comstock cherry pie filling, served with graham cracker rectangles. Delish!

  5. You know, After reading the title "Quick and easy dips and Spreads" all that my male mind came up with was a crass joke.... Ok, I would be the "Dip" in that title... the "blue" iterpretion of Quick and Easy Spread" I will leave alone.

    Sorry, I'm a male, forgive me, even food reverts back to sex with us dumb sacks of loveable....

  7. The crab dip sounds yummmmm....The Jalapeno dip would never make it into my mouth. I have a hard time eating things that are hot.
