I get bored with the same old plain cream cheese and the store bought flavors are not usually very tasty (or very limited choice) so I did some searching for different recipes to make at home that can be used for appetizers, crackers, fresh fruit and fresh veggies as well as bagels :-) Here are a few choices:
Cherry Cream Cheese
Beat first ingredients together until fluffy and then fold in the cherries.
Coffee Cream Cheese
Beat all ingredients together until light and well blended.
Orange Cream Cheese
Beat all ingredients until smooth.
Pineapple Cream Cheese
Mix both ingredients until blended
Ham Cream Cheese
Combine first three ingredients until smooth and then stir in the ham and onions.
Jalapeno And Cilantro Cream Cheese
Blend ingredients until smooth.

This is really good as a spread on sour dough or French bread and I love using it as a dip for Jicama!
