Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine preserves and chile pepper in a small bowl. Spread rice cakes with cream cheese; top with the preserve mixture. Sprinkle with rosemary.



Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
