Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Allow cream cheese to soften at room temp or microwave for 30 seconds until it is easily spreadable.
  2. Place chips in a single layer on a serving platter to cover the entire surface. You do not have to use them all.
  3. Using a small spoon spread desired amount of cream cheese on each chip. Refrigerate any cream cheese not used.
  4. Using a separate spoon add a dollop of jelly on top of cream cheese reserving any unused jelly for another purpose.
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. Try other types of jam or jelly but I try to use unusual varieties for maximum 'wow' factor like mint-pear, orange-onion, tarragon-tomato etc -- Excellent with Pvt Amy's #101956 White Zinfandel Jelly.
  7. I have even used crackers instead of chips-even plain old saltines work!
  8. Have fun and experiment!

I canned a ton of jars of Hot as Hell Habanero Zucchini Jelly (Recipe=95424) and served this as an appetizer. Half like the Carr's water crackers and half liked the Fritos the best. A truly simple, outstanding appetizer!

I make this often for work as its easy to grab when we have a minute but to make it easier to transport and eat I mix the softened cream cheese with the jelly and blend on low with the hand mixer for a minute....fabulous and easy.
