If you want a spread that will kick things up a notch in flavor, this jalapeno cheese spread is it. This dip is warm, creamy, and full of flavor. This isn't for the faint of heart, though. It has quite the kick to it. Adjust spice amounts to your liking. We served it with crackers but this appetizer would be great on warm French bread or even over grilled chicken.
