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?

Thanks!

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 for...how to make it creamy (making it into the creamy consistency like what you would get in the tub version).

I take a brick of cream cheese , put in the mircowave for 30 seconds and then add a can of salmon drained,and take the skin out . I mash it in with some Mrs Dash citrus seasoning

it is smooth. Lovely on toasted bagel

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.

enjoy

Take a 8 oz. block of cream cheese, at room temperature place in a bowl. Pour hot pepper jelly over it & serve with assorted crackers. For Christmas, it's pretty, to do one with red pepper jelly and one with green pepper jelly.

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. ;-)

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