Cream cheese is such a versatile ingredient. It can be used in casseroles, desserts, dips and spreads. While I love cream cheese for the purpose of satisfying my sweet tooth, I enjoy using it as a spread. For example, I like to whip up chipotle cream cheese and spread it over chips, crackers and bread paired with cured meat or smoked salmon.
This spread is great on a smoked salmon chips. Just add a layer of chipotle cream cheese, smoked salmon topped with red onions and capers and it’s an instant party favorite. Another use for the chipotle cream cheese spread is on a bagel. Yes, smoky and spicy cream cheese is absolutely wonderful on a toasted bagel. I like to pair it with an Asiago cheese bagel. This chipotle cream cheese is game changing for those who loves smoky and spicy.
These are the two ways I like to enjoy this chipotle cream cheese spread. I’m pretty sure you can find other use for it in parties bites, appetizers, sauces, dips and so much more. Try this recipe and see what creative ways you can use this spread.
