Party guests will "ooh" and "aah" over this delectable spread!

1 pkg (8 ounces) cream cheese

 Yellow or green bell pepper

1 piece (2 inches) green onion

1/4 cup Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa

1/4 cup apricot preserves or orange marmalade

1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro

Assorted tortilla chips, crackers or sliced vegetables, if desired

1 Cut block of cream cheese diagonally in half; arrange on serving plate with shallow rim to form triangle.

2 Cut star out of bell pepper with star-shaped cookie cutter; place at top of tree. Place green onion piece at base of tree.

3 Mix salsa and preserves; spoon over cream cheese. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.

Add presents to your tree when you arrange small crackers at the base of the spread.

I have had the cream cheese with a red pepper jelly on top and i was very skeptical but it was SO good. I would think this would be kind of similar.....

 I've seen this before, the flavors just don't sound right together for me, but I think the idea is adorable.
