Cream Cheese Bacon Salsa spread with Black Bean crackers gluten-free

Cream Cheese Bacon Salsa Spread with Black Bean Crackers {gluten-free}

A simple spread made with tangy cream cheese, smoky bacon and mild or hot salsa, along with other fresh ingredients is a mouthwatering hit of any entertaining. The spread's flavor may be changed with the type of salsa, as well as its heat level. I used a smoky chipotle salsa that was a wonderful compliment to the bacon and cream cheese. Pairs perfectly with Breton Black Bean with Onion and Garlic gluten-free crackers.

  • 2 large Scallions , white and light green portions
  • 1 large garlic clove , peeled
  • 2 8- ounce packages Cream Cheese , softened
  • 4 slices Bacon , fully cooked and drained; any large pieces of fat removed after cooking
  • ½ cup Salsa , mild or hot
  • 1 tablespoon Sour Cream
  • 1 tablespoon Chives , chopped
  • Garnish option: pickled jalapeno slices
  • Breton Gluten-Free Black Bean with Onion and Garlic Crackers


  • Add the scallions and garlic to the bowl of a food processor or blender. Pulse to process into smaller pieces (will be processed again with the rest of the ingredients so the pieces do not have to be very small).
  • Add the remaining ingredients (cream cheese, bacon, salsa, sour cream and chives) and process until all the ingredients are fully combined and the spread is creamy. Place in the refrigerator in a sealed container to thicken (10 minutes or longer). Serve with a spreading knife and sliced pickled jalapeno pepper slices as optional garnish.
