I have always been a fan of cream cheese and jam as a combo. Recently I was making a dish of chipotle short ribs for my own blog and had a few chiles left over from the recipe I was creating. I thought “what would go well with this smoky chipotle flavor?” The first thing that popped in my head was strawberry jam….. maybe because they look alike in color? Then without a second passing, I knew I would pour the whole thing over a block of cream cheese and serve it with crackers! It’s like a mini cheesecake with a touch of spice. Enjoy!
Ingredients for strawberry chipotle cream cheese dip:
- 2 to 3 – canned chipotle chiles (in adobo sauce)
- 1/2 – cup strawberry jam
- 1/4- cup water
- cream cheese block
- crackers (I used Ritz)
- Place chipotle chiles, strawberry jam, and water in a blender. Blend until it becomes a smooth sauce.
- Place cream cheese block on a plate and pour strawberry chipotle sauce over the top.
- Serve with crackers…. dip it or spread it!
