Pineapple Pecan Cheese Spread

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by jenne

A little bit sweet, a little bit crunchy and a little bit spicy. A great spread to take to a party. Found this recipe in Jan/Feb 2007 edition of Simple & Delicious (a Taste of Home publication so you know it's good). Serve with assorted fresh veggies and crackers for dipping and spreading. Feel free to increase the heat with a half tsp of diced fresh Jalapeno pepper.

Yummmy, the green chilies and pineapple blended perfectly. Made for setting on the patio last night, nice combo with triscits and flat bread and a glass of wine. Made for ZWT.
