I am always hungry. Like always. When I get home from work I need a little something to keep me from eating half of dinner before it even makes it to the table. Little bit sized snacks that are quick to whip and easy to snack on while I cook are ideal. I have been on a smoked salmon kick lately. I love it on everything but my favorite is paired with cream cheese. As a kid, one of my favorite snacks was crackers with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and Tabasco. When I got a sample bottle of Formosa Chipotle Hot Sauce in my Hatchery box last month smoked salmon immediately came to mind and the idea for this delicious little bite of perfection was born.
FormosaSauce makes a Habanero Hot Sauce and the Chipotle one I used from a recipe developed over 30 years ago. Both sauces are 100% natural with no preservatives which I love. I have yet to try the habanero one, but after making this I definitely want to. The Formosa chipotle sauce is about a 6 on the heat scale (to me, but I love spicy foods) and the contrast of the cool and creamy avocado and cream cheese is absolutely delish. Use whipped cream cheese to make it easier to spread without breaking the crackers and to cut a few calories. I had chives in the fridge so I threw some of those on top too, green onions would have been good too. A few fresh herbs is always a good idea.
I can’t wait to try this stuff on everything. Formosa egg muffins tomorrow morning? I think yes.
