"Code Red" Cheese Spread

Rated as 3.67 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Place cream cheese, fromage blanc, tomato paste, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, onion, and garlic powder in a bowl. Add sriracha sauce, ghost pepper sauce, sweet and hot paprika, chipotle powder, and cayenne pepper. Stir until well combined and the cheeses are completely blended in.
  2. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate about 3 hours or, ideally, overnight. Season with salt, if desired.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl.


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

I made it for a party and people couldn't get enough.

I love spicy food so this dip was perfect. If you want it less spicy dont use as much cayenne and/or dont use ghost pepper sauce

when you said dangerously spicy I didn't know you meant I would die, now I am a ghost and I am coming to haunt you hahAA
