Chill Time time 8 hrs
Yield Makes 18 to 20 appetizer servings


  • 4 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened and divided

How to Make It

  1. Beat 3 packages cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, and red pepper at medium speed with an electric mixer until blended and smooth. Stir in green onions.

  2. Spread half of cream cheese mixture into an 8-inch round cake pan lined with plastic wrap; spread top with tomato chutney, leaving a 1/2-inch border of cream cheese around outside edge. Spread remaining cream cheese mixture over chutney and cream cheese border. Cover and chill at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.
