What Are Some Savory Recipes That Use Cream Cheese?

Good Questions

Q: I sent my husband to our local bulk warehouse store for a few ingredients, and he came home with a HUGE container of cream cheese....for the two of us. We are on a low-sugar diet, so I don't want to make desserts. Do you have any suggestions for savory dishes that use cream cheese?

Editor: Emma, you can make a small dent in the cream cheese by spreading it on sandwiches, or mixing it with herbs and eating it with fresh vegetables, like in this recipe:

Spring Appetizer: Pea Pods Stuffed with Herbed Cream Cheese

I know that will only make a small dent, though! Readers, do you have any ideas for savory dishes that use cream cheese?
