  2. The longer the mixture sits, the hotter it becomes.

Very nice cream cheese. It is much better after it sits. I tried it right after making it and found it kind of bland but the next day it sure was packed with heat. Thanks for posting.

This couldn't be easier! I used a very large jalapeno, which was perfect heat-wise. I noticed it did get hotter the longer it sat, but it actually did not sit too long...we ate it too fast!
