6 strips of crispy, diced bacon
2 8-oz packages of softened cream cheese (Neufchatel works, too.)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use Miracle Whip, but there is a slight difference. Try both and see which you like better.)
1/2 cup Texas Passion Jalapeno Pepper Jelly
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup finely diced green onion
1 cup finely crushed Ritz crackers
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 stick melted butter or margarine (not whipped)
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 350, and get out a large casserole dish.
Combine all of the dip ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well.
Transfer these ingredients to your casserole dish. If you want a thick (tall) dip, use a deeper, smaller dish.
Combine all the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the top of the dip.
Bake in that 350 oven for about 25 minutes. After 15 minutes, check regularly, for when the topping starts to bubble, it’s ready to remove from the oven.
Let the dip “set” for about a half hour before diving into it with the assorted crackers. Remember, it’s really hot at first, so keep an eye on the smaller children.
Oh, it’s great with breadsticks and cut vegetables, too. Just remember, it’s jalapeno, and that means hot, with more than just the oven heat!
We here at Texas Pepper Jelly wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas. We hope your feast table is covered with our products, and if you run out, you’ve got time to order more before New Year’s!
Whether your Christmas is “white” or not, may it be merry and bright.
If you order now, you’ll get your package well before New Year’s, and believe me, you’ll need our products for New Year’s Eve if you’ve having people over, or going where the people are, or even just sitting at home waiting for the Times Square ball to drop!
So often, the simplest things are the best, remember. One of our favorite things to do with pepper jelly is just to spoon some over a brick of cream cheese and dip crackers and/or raw vegetables in it. It looks and tastes like something you’ve worked on all day, but it takes about 30 seconds to prepare! While you’ve got the jar of pepper jelly out, spread some on your hot biscuits or rolls. You’ll never use anything else!
We know that those of you who ordered our custom gift tins will be the hit of the family reunion or workplace gift exchange. Nobody else will bring what you bring, and they’ll crown you king/queen of the party!
Pepper Jelly is such a simple and delicious thing. But as I said above, it’s those simple things that are oh-so-often the best!
If you order by December 18, you’re guaranteed to get your package in time for Christmas. Texas Pepper Jelly is noted for fast, efficient delivery.
Remember, too, that when you order a gift package from Texas Pepper Jelly, YOU get to choose the flavors you want. We believe in pleasing our customers, not in pre-packaging our gift tins for our own convenience. YOU choose the flavors. We’ll make ’em up fresh, pack them in your choice of cool, attractive, festive tins, and, if you order before the 18th, promise they’ll arrive in time for Christmas.
At Texas Pepper Jelly, when it comes to flavors and delivery, your wish is our command.
Order soon. The 18th of December is coming up, but it’s not here yet. (We’ll keep reminding you!) Check out our website. Drool a little; you’ve got some hard choices to make, because ALL of our pepper jelly, rib candy, and Bird Bath flavors are fantastic.
Suggestion: why not try them all?
Our two awesome seasonal flavors, Strawberry Rhubarb Habanero and Cranberry Habanero
are not only fantastic holiday gifts, but also two items you sorely need for your own holiday table. Both flavors are versatile and delicious. Remember: you NEED them!
As for the rest of the people on your holiday list, Texas Pepper Jelly has lots of gift options! Our holiday sampler packs are ideal gifts – after all, ANYBODY can wrap up some socks, but it takes a real friend to wrap up a Texas Pepper Jelly holiday sampler tin! Remember, too, that you can choose your pepper jelly flavors in that sampler – we might be the only such business that allows that! Most food catalogs, etc, give you no options at all as to flavors; you take what they give you. Texas Pepper Jelly, however, gives you what you ask us to give you. In fact, we make it up fresh for you when we get your order!
Give our two new holiday flavors a try, why don’tcha. They’re awesome. And while you’re ordering some pepper jelly for yourself, why not complete your Christmas shopping right here by ordering some Texas Pepper Jelly products for everyone else on your list!
If you want to give someone a Christmas gift that is absolutely unique, and that he/she will not only like, but will also use and want more, I would have to suggest one of our Texas Pepper Jelly sampler tins.
Our sampler tins are beautiful and their contents are DELICIOUS! The tins themselves are, of course, completely recyclable. After you’ve devoured the pepper jelly within, fill the tin with fudge and take it to work. Tell everybody about the original contents, and watch the interest light up their faces!
Texas Pepper Jelly holiday tins contain six 2-ounce jars of assorted pepper jelly. In fact, you get to choose what kind of pepper jelly that will be in your tin: get any kind of assortment you want, or choose the one kind of pepper jelly that is your favorite! Since I like ALL kinds of pepper jelly, I’d have to get one of each, but you can pick and choose whatever kind you want.
Our Texas Pepper Jelly holiday tins are only $22.97. Where else can you get a quality sampler assortment for a price like that?
