Mornings With Gina Birch

Weekdays 6am - 10am

When I find things I like, I like to share them. From shoes and kitchen gadgets, to farmer’s markets and restaurants. They all can and do get featured here every week. This week I have to share a new product. Trader Joe’s Cheesy pepper spread is a Fabulous Find. I found this at the grocery store in Fort Myers at Page Field Commons.  It was an accident.

I love going to TJ’s to stock up on snacks, get items for cheese boards and always, flowers. I was headed out of town to help a friend move and stopped in to grab a few items to nosh on during the process. Packing is always so tedious and you always need fuel. There it was. A tasting table. On that table was a tray of crackers, smeared with some kind of spread. The woman looked at me with a smile and told me that I needed to try this new cheddar cheese spread with hatch chile. Who was I to say no?

These were not the crackers Trader Joe’s served with the dip. However, while you are there, pick up a box. They are pretty good too.

Trader Joe’s Cheesy Pepper Spread

It went right into my basket, along with the crackers. My friends devoured it. They dipped pretzels in it, celery sticks too. I have since gone back for another container to confirm its delight. Did I enjoy it because I was so hungry or was it really good? Does it taste a little processed? Yes. Do I care? In this instance, no. It’s a new guilty pleasure. I happily interchange it with my imported, $32 a pound, truffle brie.

I have used it on a burgers as well as on a breakfast sandwich to add a little extra pop. Next, I may try to heat it up for a dip. Trader Joe’s cheesy pepper spread is a Fabulous Find that you will find in my refrigerator on a regular basis now. Or at least until my doctor tells me to stop.
