Here’s how to make it:

  1. Cut the stem off 7 or 8 jalapenos, clean out their seeds, cut them in half lengthwise and place, open face up, on a baking sheet. I strongly recommend wearing gloves to do this!

  2. In a medium bowl, use a fork to mash and whisk together 4 oz. softened cream cheese and 2-3 heaping spoonfuls of your favorite guacamole. Make sure it is well combined, and that all the cream cheese chunks are broken up.
