Oh my gosh, this was so good! I could just eat it with a spoon and nothing else! I ended up only using 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes because I wasn't sure how spicy it would be, though next time ...

Such a good combination with crackers and mozzarella cheese!

Delicious on crackers with cream cheese.
