Super Bowl Snacks

I have a food problem, (duh, look at my weight) I love to entertain and cook for people. I have been scouring the internet trying to find low fat, delicious crowd pleasing recipes. I have been testing some out the last few weeks and I am happy to report the following recipes back to you. I loved them, Hubs loved them and anyone that tried them loved them!

2 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce, or to taste   
1 Tbsp chives, fresh, chopped (optional)   

  • In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese, blue cheese, garlic and salt until smooth; spoon about 1/2 tablespoon cheese mixture into each piece of celery.
