    Another tasty one for red pepper fans. I found this recipe on the American Heart Association's web site.

      I made this for a family gathering and it was the hit of the evening! I added more pepper flakes as we like things turned up a notch. I didn't have apricot jam or preserves so I used a peach-papaya fruit spread...ohhhhh, to die for! Five stars! Thanks!

      Quick, easy and fabulous! The only change I made was to use apricot preserves, as that was what I had on hand. Just don't make my silly, thoughtless mistake - do not freeze the cream cheese/sour cream mixture as it will make the texture mealy and unpleasant!
