I have to give my friend Kelly full credit for this recipe. She created it to have a low carb side dish to take to a family meal. It’s delicious, flavorful, and versatile. You can use it as a side. It’s good to use as a dip with raw veggies or toasted low carb pita chips. You can add some chicken to make it a complete meal. I also think it would be appropriate to use on a fat fast.
2 packages of softened cream cheese
5-6 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
