Cream Cheese Appetizer

This is a very simple three ingredient appetizer that you can make in a hurry and watch disappear with your favorite crackers or tortilla chips.

Here's all you need for this sweet and spicy appetizer:

1 small tub of softened cream cheese.
2 heaping tablespoons of Raspberry jam.
2 heaping tablespoons of Rotel (original) diced tomatoes and green chilies.

Mix the jam and the Rotel together and pour over the cream cheese.
Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.


  1. That sounds so simple and delicious! Never would have thought to mix raspberry jam and tomatoes together. So many layers of flavours!

  2. Oh I'll have to test this before I dare serve it. =D (Sounds so yummy!)

  3. That sounds and looks delicious! A mouth-watering appetizer! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. sounds yummy. Has anyone tried this using a different flavor of jam?

    1. WPgirl, I've only tried it with raspberry but I'm guessing it would be good with most any sweet jam you like...
