The Texas Pepper Jelly website has some recipes that make me weak in the knees just to think about!  In fact, there are many fantastic ways to use Texas Pepper Jelly in your kitchen, and every Wednesday, right here, you can find a new recipe!  What’s Cookin’ Wednesday is a regular feature here on our blog.

I’m going to start with one of my personal favorites, and it’s so easy, it’s almost unbelievable that it could possibly taste SO WONDERFUL since so little effort goes into it.  You don’t even have to cook it!  I’ve made this with regular jams and jellies countless numbers of times and it’s always good, but with Texas Pepper Jelly, it’s more than merely “good.”  It’s AWESOME!

Just unwrap a package of cream cheese and let it soften.  Then, a few minutes before it’s time to dig in, pour a jar of Texas Pepper Jelly – any flavor will work – over the cream cheese, set out some crackers (all kinds!) and stand back.  The whole thing will be gone before you can count to ten, and your crowd will ask for more!
