  • 1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup pineapple preserves
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2-3 fresh jalapeños, finely chopped (seeds and membranes removed for milder heat)
  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped (optional, for garnish)
  • Crackers, tortilla chips, or vegetable sticks for dipping


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, pineapple preserves, and prepared horseradish. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated.
  2. Add the finely chopped jalapeños and green onions to the mixture. Stir to evenly distribute the ingredients throughout the dip. Adjust the amount of jalapeños to your desired level of spiciness.
  3. If you’re using pecans for garnish, toast them in a dry skillet over medium heat for a few minutes until they become fragrant and lightly browned. Let them cool, then chop them finely.
  4. Transfer the Hot Jezebel Dip to a serving dish and sprinkle the chopped pecans (if using) on top for added crunch and flavor.
  5. Chill the dip in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld together and intensify.
  6. Serve your Hot Jezebel Dip with your choice of crackers, tortilla chips, or fresh vegetable sticks. Enjoy the delightful combination of sweet and spicy flavors!
