Here 's the grown-up version of cream-cheese-stuffed celery sticks: In this recipe, the cheese gets its punch from dried chip beef and zesty horseradish.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 8 ounces dried beef, chopped
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 bunch celery
In a small mixing bowl, combine beef and cream cheese; mix well. Add horseradish, black pepper and lemon juice, mix until well blended. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Remove leaves and ends from celery, and cut remaining stalks in half. Spread cream cheese mixture into the celery stalks.
