Jalapeno Celery Crack from Snapshot Incursive

Day 75 – At least once or twice a month we make Charcuterie for dinner. The kids love it because it fun to put together and they both have some of their favorite items plus a few new things to try each time. I had read about “Jalapeno Celery Crack” on Snapshots Incursive  (click for link to original blog post on Snapshots Incursive) and thought my son would love it. He likes spicy dishes and thought this would be right up his alley.  Gail assured me that it was not too spicy and that the cream cheese and celery cut the pickled jalapenos. She has some amazing dishes on her blog and  hope you will go over and check them out!

Verdict: This was a delicious dip. It was not too spicy, although I did cut down on the pickled jalapenos a bit and added a bit more garlic powder, onion powder, and dill to make up for the loss of flavor from the extra jalapenos. If you like the spicy go for the full 2/3 of a cup of pickled jalapenos, if not do them to taste. My son even added a bit of hot sauce to his little bowl to spice his up. Thank you, Gail it was an amazing addition to our charcuterie. We did not serve ours on celery as Gail did but decided to spread it on baguette and crackers. Have fun and play with your food!
