Strawberry Jalapeno Bruschetta: A quick and easy appetizer to whip up for last minute guests, or to serve for an elegant cocktail party!

Jalapeno jellies have been all the rage around our house lately, and I’ve been looking for new and creative ways to incorporate them in to snack-size treats and appetizers. My mom made KILLER jalapeno jelly the other day, but we ate most of it within the day.

So on the hunt at the grocery store I went to find a jalapeno jelly to restock our refrigerator. I was tickled to see that they had multiple flavors, and fell in love when I saw a “Strawberry Jalapeno” jelly. It just sounded fun and flavorful!

With a little thought, I grabbed a small loaf of french bread from the bakery, a block of cream cheese and a bit of fresh mint from produce. Before I knew it, a quick and easy appetizer was created.

Quick & Classy

Like most of my other recipes, it is one that can be made in just a short time, but yet looks classy enough to serve to guests. I thoroughly enjoy making these when family or friends top by at the last minute, because the ingredients are usually common goods that I keep at home.

If I’m out of french bread, I’ll substitute it with crackers, and it’s JUST as good. You’d be surprised how good a jalapeno jelly combined with cream cheese actually is.

It’s “no-bake,” it’s quick, it’s easy, it’s classy. Some of my FAVORITE characteristics of an appetizer.
