Taco Pockets

One of our newest cooks created a delicious recipe with one of our newest products, Challenge Salsa Flavored Cream Cheese. It's made with real bits of garden-fresh vegetables and all-natural ingredients. This recipe puts it center stage and is a hit with kids.

My daughter Alivia loves to cook with me. She recently combined two kid favorites into one recipe and created “Taco Pockets!” — a delicious combination of pizza and a taco in one bite! About 100 taco pockets later, Arizona Midday, a popular television show here in Phoenix, asked her to be a guest on their show. That day a “star was born” and she now wants to cook more than ever!

Avocado Summer Fresh Salad

Enjoy the fresh, natural flavors of summer with this nutritious medley of garden fresh veggies and homemade avocado sauce.

This summer, Challenge has introduced a couple incredible flavor-packed cream cheese spreads. The new Salsa variety was the inspiration for my new veggie creation. Challenge Cream Cheese has added bold and natural flavors so there is less work for me to do! I whipped up a very light and creamy sauce full of bold flavor, not your typical salad dressing.

Berry Blasted Cream Pops

Cool off with a creamy treat featuring Challenge's new Strawberry Cream Cheese, fresh summer berries, and Greek yogurt.

My daughter, Alivia, came up with the idea for the ultimate cream pop! Her idea was spot on, and they are indeed the best frozen treat we have ever made! They are healthy, creamy, and refreshing on a hot summer’s day. The best part is she and her friends can make them all by themselves giving me a break. Summer is getting a bit easier and healthier at our house!

A Dream of an Ice Cream Cake

Suzanne recreates a sweet, creamy treat she remembers enjoying as a child.

As a child, my favorite ice cream treat was an orange creamsicle. I loved the frosty taste of the orange layer wrapped around the delicious creamy center. Lately I’ve been dreaming about those creamsicles and knew I had to make up a recipe to bring that flavor back in my life and my kids’ childhoods.

Anything that contains butter, cream cheese, and fruit is always a favorite at our house. Using these ingredients, I started making stuffed French toast that quickly became a Sunday tradition at our house."

Patriotic Potato Salad

Summer is the season of backyard barbecues, family gatherings, and picnics. In this recipe, Suzanne Clark puts a colorful spin on this go-to classic.

In my new version of potato salad, I replaced the mayo with delicious Challenge Cream Cheese which gives it an amazing creamy texture and far more flavor. Fresh dill and lemon lend a fresh summery essence. And the bacon… well I don’t think I need to explain that ingredient! I’ve selected a mix of red, white and “blue” baby potatoes to add a patriotic and festive touch."
