Here's how to make your own whipped cream cheese instead of paying extra for it at the market. Beat cream cheese in a bowl while slowly adding 3 to 4 tablespoons of milk per 8 ounces of cream cheese. It's as easy, peasy as that. ;-)

I bought a brick of cream cheese and I'd like to make it into a spread (like the kind you buy in a tub). Any ideas?

I ahve a friend who jsut made one for me, it was yummy. Use about the ammount of cream cheese that would come in a regular cube and mix in some canned green chilies (to taste) and spread on tortillas and roll up. It was yummy!

Also, you could spread some on toasted sourdough bread and then topwith a mixture of onion, minced garlic, sundried tomatoes and capers. Mmmmmm

Thank you for all of the flavor/seasoning ideas but I guess I should have been more specific.

One of the guest posts on 9/22 answered what I had been looking to make it creamy (making it into the creamy consistency like what you would get in the tub version).

I use fat free yogurt to thin the cream cheese to tub like consistancy. You may need to stir it when you get it back out of the refrig.

When mixing cream cheese, add a tablespoon or two of milk to make it smoother.
