Two-Ingredient Cream Cheese Spread for Crackers

by Tonya Staab

Need a quick and easy spread to add to your next charcuterie board? Try this two-ingredient cream cheese and chive spread that has a sriracha kick.

You all know about my love of charcuterie boards by now. I’ve been making them for years for everything from home entertaining to movie night with the kids and lunchtime dates at home with Mike.

Most of what I include on these boards is store-bought but I often like to include a little something homemade that’s quick and easy to whip up. This two-ingredient cream cheese and chive spread is the perfect addition to a charcuterie board.

I used a tub of cream cheese with chives to make this recipe, but you can use a regular plain tub of cream cheese instead. Simply finely chop about one tablespoon of fresh chives and mix it in.

Serves: 6-8 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 1 tub of Cream cheese with chives (alternatively, plain cream cheese with 1 tbs freshly chopped chives)
  • 1 tbs Sriracha sauce


  1. Add the Sriracha to the tub of cream cheese with chives.
  2. Combine until the Sriracha is completely mixed in, and then spoon the mixture into a serving dish.

It’s really that quick and easy. Now I just want to plant chives at home so I always have them on hand because our refrigerator is always stocked with plain cream cheese for bagels.
