Cream cheese and pepper jelly are a popular combination in recipes like Mini Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly Phyllo Cups, Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly Dip and Pepper Jelly and Cream Cheese spread. This mixture is great for something spicy and creamy. The cream cheese keeps the peppers from being too hot and overpowering, but still giving a great flavor.
The Mini Cream Cheese and Pepper jelly Phyllo Cup are easy to make by using frozen phyllo dough. Simply press the dough into mini muffin pans and then stuff with the cream cheese and pepper jelly. Bake the cups for about 20 minutes or until the cheese melts and the dough turns a golden brown.
The Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly dip is a great choice for last-minute party ideas. The recipe simply calls for cream cheese, pepper jelly and crackers. Soften the cream cheese and pour the jelly onto it to finish the dip. Serve it with crackers.
The Pepper Jelly and Cream Cheese spread is very similar to the dip recipe in how it is made, but is best served with a spreader knife and put on bagels instead of crackers. The recipe goes well at parties or for school luncheons.
