This 'dangerously spicy' party snack is so easy and tasty. People sometimes say this creamy, cheesy pepper spread is too spicy, but then they keep eating it. Naturally, you can adjust the heat for your personal tastes. I like to serve this with crisp flatbreads.

Chef's Note:

If you can't find fromage blanc, substitute an equal amount of mascarpone cheese or just more cream cheese.
