  • 1/2 lb. jalapeños very thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. raspberry jam
  • 4-8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • pretzels for dipping


  • Bring jalapenos, raspberry jam, and 1/4 cup water to a simmer in a small pot. Let simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
  • While jalapenos are simmering, spread cream cheese evenly on a large serving plate. Use 4 oz. for a spicier spread, 8 oz. for a milder version.
  • Once the sauce has reduced, spread the jalapeno jam over the cream cheese.
  • Serve at room temp with pretzels for dipping.
