Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 8

Ingredients

  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste (optional)
  • 1 (8 oz) cream cheese brick

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients less the cream cheese in a medium saucepan. Cook mixture over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture has reduced by half and thicken, about 25 - 30 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and let it cool.
  • Pour hot pepper jelly over the cream cheese brick and serve with crackers or mini tartlets.
  • If not using immediately pour the mixture into a glass jar and store in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.

Notes

If you want to add more heat you could add a jalapeño pepper, crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper.
For the mini tartlets, I used store-bought pie dough. I cut it with a round cookie cutter and arrange the rounds in an ungreased mini muffin pan. Then baked them for 10- 12 minutes at 425ºF.
