250-g pkg
cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup
chopped chives, or finely chopped green onion
2 tbsp
hot sauce, such as Dan T's Spiced Cayenne Sauce


  • Place room-temperature cream cheese in a small bowl. Or remove cold cheese from wrapping and place in a bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on high until softened, from 45 to 60 seconds. Stir in chives and hot sauce. Turn into a dish and serve with a small knife for spreading. Covered and refrigerated, spread keeps well for 3 days.

Here’s a spicy new spin on a classic spread from Therese Taylor. Try spreading it liberally on bagel chips or small rice cakes.
