This is a great party dip! I whipped the peppers into the cream cheese to make it easier to spread and it went fast. Everyone said how much they liked it!

If you are looking for a super fast and easy appetizer, this is it! It's a delicious twist on the standard jalapeno jelly & cream cheese. I loved the flavor of the peach preserves (I doubled the amount to 1/2 cup!) with the jalapeno. I served this with club crackers. I brought an empty plate back to my kitchen. Thanks Karen From Colorado!
