2tsp olive oil
1/2 small green capsicum, chopped finely
1/2 small onion chopped finely
2 T drained bottled jalapeno chillies chopped finely
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2x400gm can undrained chopped peeled tomatoes
250gm softened cream cheese
Heat oil in a medium saucepan: cook capsicum, onion, jalapeno and garlic stirring until onion softens. Add tomato; cook stirring for 2 minutes.
Add cheese and whisk until smooth
Serve hot with corns chips
I prepare and cook the vegetable mix ahead of time to the 'cheese stage'. 5 mins before required I reheat, add the cheese until smooth and serve
