If you need an appetizer at a moment’s notice, this is the perfect recipe. If you need an appetizer that everyone loves, this is the perfect recipe. It’s so easy to make that it seems misleading to call it a recipe – with only two ingredients, this may be the easiest appetizer ever and it is delicious.

A main ingredient in this appetizer is horseradish jelly or jalapeno pepper jelly. You can purchase this at any larger grocery in the jam and jelly aisle. Just look for a pepper jelly (red pepper jelly is usually available in any jelly aisle).

Always keep cream cheese in the refrigerator, jalapeno jelly and crackers in the cupboard, and you will never be without a quick appetizer for surprise guests. This is so good, however, that you shouldn’t wait until others stop by – make it for yourself!
