Jalapeno Pimento Cheddar Cream Cheese Spread


I love a big chewy toasted bagel for breakfast.  Of course, who wants to eat a dry bagel for breakfast!  You can put some butter or some plain cream cheese on  it, but I can't resist something spicy for breakfast so I came up with this easy cream cheese spread. 

This jalapeno cream cheese spread goes perfectly on a bagel.   I simply took some store bought cream cheese and blended it up with all the ingredients that make a great jalapeno pimento cheese filling.  It was quick and easy and now I have a tasty topping for my breakfast bagel for the entire week.  Bagel + Jalapeno Pimento Cheddar Cream Cheese Spread = breakfast harmony.

1 8oz brick of cream cheese softened
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2-3 seeded jalapenos chopped
1/4 cup of jarred pimentos drained
1 tsp granulated garlic powder
red chili flakes to taste
black pepper to taste
salt to taste


In a food processor, blend the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and seasoning until smooth.  Then add the diced jalapenos and blend again.  Finally fold in the pimento.  Chill mixture until needed. Keep refrigerated.  Serve with bagel or toast.  Enjoy.
