Recipe by Daniel Dirmeyer, Executive Sous Chef, Biga On the Banks, San Antonio TX
2 to 4 Tbsp. Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa, Mild according to desired consistency
8 oz low fat cream cheese (whole cream cheese makes a stiffer spread)
2 garlic cloves, chopped/pressed
½ tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ancho chili powder (regular chili powder can be substituted)
3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, rinsed, patted dry and finely chopped (optional)
1 tsp. kosher salt
Dip: Add 2 to 4 Tbsp. of light or regular sour cream for desired consistency.
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Best if refrigerated overnight.
Suggestion: Great for making a southwest chicken salad, on veggie or meat wraps, as stuffing for bacon wrapped grilled jalapenos, on crackers or gourmet bread when spread with apricot jelly and cream cheese. Using no sour cream & whole cream cheese makes a stiff spread great for filling celery, topping crackers, or try filling a jalapeno with shrimp and spread. Wrap with bacon and grill.
