Pineapple Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread – This quick and easy recipe comes together in a snap with just four ingredients! This sweet and spicy cream cheese spread is perfect for sandwiches, wraps, crackers or bagels!
Oh my goodness, friends! Do I have a treat for you!
For some time now, I’ve whipped up this incredible sweet, yet spicy cream cheese spread that I use on sandwiches, wraps, spread onto crackers and even on a toasted bagel from time to time. It is one of those quick little things that I throw together on the weekend and then store in the refrigerator to use during the week in a few recipes. It is that perfect little addition to add a little pizzaz.
And you know what, making it couldn’t get much simpler either!
It seems like every time I make this and serve it to someone new, they always ask me for the recipe. So, this past weekend when I made it, I realized it might be a recipe that you would enjoy as well.
It comes together in a snap and is just the perfect addition to kick your fish, shrimp or chicken sandwich up a notch or two!
Here’s how I make it.
I begin with softened cream cheese that I place into a medium mixing bowl. Then, I deseed and dice my jalapeno pepper and my fresh pineapple and add them both to the cream cheese. Finally, I add my salt and stir well to combine.
I generally just use a spoon to mix this all together, but you can also use a handheld or stand mixer if you’d prefer.
Once it is well combined, it is ready for use. No need to let it sit overnight for the flavors to develop. It is ready immediately!
It keeps well in the refrigerator for up to about 3 days. Just store it in an airtight container. If you have stored it in the refrigerator, you may want to remove it from the refrigerator a little before you plan to use it to allow for even easier spreading.
Here’s a hint, I have a new recipe that I use this on coming later in the week. I think you’ll love the combination! 🙂
Here’s my Pineapple Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread. I hope you love it as much as we do!
