How to Make Best darn Cheese Filling or Spread


  1. Just want to add, some cooked crumbled bacon in this would be awesome!!
  2. Chop jalapeno, red bell and onion VERY finely. Add all cheeses together with chopped veggies and mix well. I use my mixer to blend it, much easier than by hand.
  3. Use to stuff peppers or use as a spread.
