The habanero is also widely used in many different types of hot sauces. The popularity of this chile pepper continues to grow and is becoming easier to find on the grocery shelf.

  • 2 Large Habaneros
  •  1/8 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons of Milk
  • Heavy-Duty Snack Crackers (Ritz will do fine)


First, soften the cream cheese in a mixing bowl with a spoon.

Then, wearing gloves, dice two washed habanero peppers and blend into cream cheese. Add cheddar cheese and milk (the later of which is used as a thinning agent; add or subtract one tablespoon based on desired consistency).

After well mixed, spread on shack crackers and serve.
