  • 8 Ounces Cream cheese softened
  • 8 Ounces Fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 Pint Strawberries
  • 1 Whole Dried arbol chili
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Whole Lemon juice juiced


  1. Begin by combining the cream cheese and yogurt. Mix well and set aside.

    Meanwhile, toast the arbol chili in a skillet on medium heat for 2 minutes. Remove and chop up to get the seeds. In the same skillet, combine the seeds, sugar, lemon juice and mix well. Next, add the strawberries and cook down until a syrup forms. The strawberries will still hold there shape but the juices will be released.

    In bowls, place the cream cheese mixture topped with the spicy strawberries.
