This is a yummy, creamy version of standard pesto that makes a great spread for get togethers. Tastes great with pita chips or sourdough bread! Sun dried tomatoes may be mixed in for a zesty tang. Add crunch by coating the finished spread with almonds.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Place cream cheese and pesto in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Mix in the chives and cilantro. Continue blending until smooth. Transfer to a mold lined with plastic wrap. Cover and chill in the refrigerator 1 hour, or until firm.
