When it comes to entertaining, I tend to over think, over prepare and over-serve food. This year I have decided to scale it back a bit and make appetizers and main course dishes that are a little on the lighter better for you side whenever possible. I have been trying out a few new dishes and also trying to revamp old classics that were once heavy and loaded with calories, to something a bit more simple, natural and all around better for you. Every Monday is girls’ night, this week I made a delicious twist on an old favorite. Sweet and Spicy Strawberry Jalapeno Crisp Bread was a huge hit with the ladies, everyone wanted to know the recipe. Since it was such a hit with them, I figured I better let you guys in on my little secret as well. Want to know what it is? Keep reading …
Sweet and Spicy Strawberry Jalapeno Crisp Bread – Pin it for later!
One of the most requested appetizers around here during the holidays is always cream cheese, covered with a spicy pepper jelly. Served with crackers or toasted bread. While I do love the traditional version of this appetizer, I wanted to make something a bit more portable if you will. Individual servings for the guests will make it so much easier to socialize, mingle and enjoy the party. Instead of standing around the appetizer table waiting for your turn to dig into the creamy, sweet and spicy strawberry snack. I also wanted to lighten it up a bit. I’m trying to keep an eye on this girlish figure ya know!
I found an awesome new product at Walmart the other day, and if you like sweet and heat together you are going to love this one! Smucker’s Fruit and Honey Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit Spread! Yes ladies, all the great Smucker’s flavor kicked up just a notch with a bit of heat from the jalapeno. Sweetened naturally with honey, this fruit spread is not only delicious it is better for you too. Not a fan of heat? That’s ok, Smucker’s new fruit spreads come in four other flavors! Strawberry, Concord Grape, Blueberry Lemon, and Triple Berry! YUM!!
In my better for you appetizer, I decided to put the Smucker’s fruit spread on top of a crunchy, wholesome, low-calorie Wasa Multigrain Crispbread. The perfect canvas for the spicy fruit spread and creamy sweetened cream cheese.
You can find both the Wasa Multigrain Crispbread and the New Smucker’s Fruit and Honey Fruit Spreads right at your local Walmart! There is also a fantastic Ibotta offer on both at the bottom of this post!
