Okay, so you know me, I had to think up a unique recipe using the New Philadelphia cooking creme, the Santa Fe Blend flavor.Everyone in the Real Women of Philadelphia Cooking Creme competition was creating wonderful southwestern dishes and I came up with a bread idea. The Santa Fe Blend is spiced with peppers and red bell peppers.
My recipe may not be what Kraft wanted, but it was pretty good. It’s kind of like the bread that a nice bakery would introduce as what I would call a “yuppy“-type of flavored bread. Something to enjoy with their flavored teas.
I used both the Original flavored Cooking Creme and the Santa Fe Blend. So here’s the video and the recipe follows. Enjoy!Vodpod videos no longer available.
