I spread this on top of softened cream cheese and served it with pretzel chips. It was devoured and much enjoyed by all. I still get calls for the recipe. Read More

This recipe sounded interesting but it wasn't what I was expecting. I adjusted the serving size to 5 servings because pecans are so expensive up here and I wanted to try the recipe out before making a giant batch. I thought that the flavour of old cheddar cheese might be more apparent but it wasn't. I make my own jalapeño pepper jelly so I used that instead of buying a jar of raspberry jalapeño jelly. I found that the taste improved after it sat in the fridge for 24 hours but I wasn't compelled to eat it all up. Maybe if the cheese was doubled or replaced with a very sharp cheddar it might have a fuller flavour. Read More

This makes a lot, so I halved the recipie and still got a large bowl. Only change I made was I left out the onion, as I hate onion. And I used half pecans and half walnuts only because I never had enough pecans. Everybody loved it! Will make again, it has a nice texture and crunch to it. I stirred the jalapeño jam into it as opposed to spreading on top. Read More

This was excellent and very easy to make! I used Raspberry Chipotle Jam. Devoured by my family and friends on Thanksgiving. Thank you! Read More

Great Thanksgiving snack. Severed with cream cheese and raspberry jalapeño as well as a much hotter pepper jelly. I like the extra heat but it s not for everyone. Made 1/2 the recipe for a family gathering and it was more than enough. Read More

It was necessary for me to decreased servings as well. I used smoked provolone using the smallest grater side. Green onions seemed overwhelming with other ingredients so I used chives...much better for a hint of flavor. I didn't have raspberry jalapeno jam so I substituted with black berry jam with a dash of chipotle powder and drop of Tabasco Chipotle hot sauce. For those that don't want any burn try ground sumac. This is a definite keeper as it is an unusual appetizer. Read More
