Fiery Cheese-and-Chutney Appetizer

Reader Tom Davis uses Tack Sauce, his favorite habanero hot sauce, when he makes this recipe. If you can't find Tack Sauce, use any habanero hot sauce.


Makes 8 servings

Recipe from


1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (3 1/2-ounce) package Roquefort cheese, softened
1/3 cup mango chutney, chopped
1 tablespoon habanero pepper hot sauce
1/2 cup finely chopped honey-roasted peanuts
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Assorted crackers


Stir together first 4 ingredients in a small bowl until blended. Cover and chill 2 hours or until mixture is firm enough to be shaped. Shape mixture into a ball; roll in peanuts and cilantro. Serve with assorted crackers.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Crosse & Blackwell Genuine Mayor Grey's Chutney and Habanero in Your Head for hot sauce.
