Saucy Santa Fe Mary Cocktail

Kraft just released 4 flavored Cooking Cremes that have revolutionized many of my family recipes.   The 10 ounce tubs of Cooking Cremes are "Chef Inspired" by the makers at Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese. They are entirely different from the cream cheese we've all used in the kitchen for so many years.   There is no need to cook the Cremes or allow them to come to room temprature before cooking with them.  They are smooth and creamy, pourable, and spoonable.  Use a whole tub or just a few spoonfuls to add rich flavor and creaminess to your recipes.  The Cooking Cremes  supply the same amazing quality and taste of the Original Philadelphia Cream Cheese but deliver a powerful burst of flavor and an endless array of recipe ideas.

I've been very busy this past month taping several videos for the Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme Video Challenge.  Finally, the last of my videos is complete and I can breath a sigh of relief! 

I found that making cooking videos without the aid of a personal videographer, or a lighting and editing crew was horribly frustrating, time consuming, and exasperating!  It was also a labor of love, filled with funny moments, technically genius blond moments, and six delicious new recipes. Sadly, I lost one new recipe videos due to my horrible filming and editing skills! However, all is not lost....I'll be posting the recipe for Creme Date Bars with some pictures very soon.  

Recipe #5 Santa Fe Blend

This cocktail is absolutely delicious with the addition of the Kraft, Santa Fe Blend Cooking Creme. It takes the everyday Bloody Mary to new heights in flavor and brings a new dimension of creaminess to this wonderful morning cocktail drink. Omit the alcohol and the whole family can enjoy this healthy and filling breakfast drink .
