Surveying the fridge for a late night snack, I discovered a container of guacamole right next to some fresh chèvre cheese. Serendipity, I thought, so I mixed some together (half and half) and applied the mix to some crackers. Yum.
So, can you suggest some other great cheese+? combinations for snacks? (Cream cheese and chives is too easy.) There must be some secret recipes out there...
I have an unnatural fondness for this (literal) hot mess: rice, grated cheddar, chopped tomatoes, black olives & pickled jalapenos. Not-chos?
Don't know how widely this is available (it's a Chicago product), but my favorite cream cheese mix-in is hot muffaletta mix, chopped olives and other vegetables in a spicy oil. Delicious on crackers or bagels.
Second favorite is a creamy blue cheese blended into cream cheese.
Probably too obvious but I love a raspberry honey with cream cheese on a bagel. Also a nice tangy lemon curd with cream cheese on another bagel. A bagel with strawberry jam and cream cheese will do in a pinch :-).
Roasted red peppers zizzed up with a good sheeps' milk feta is a mighty fine savoury option.
