  2. Spoon chutney over one brick; top with almonds. Spoon salsa over other brick; top with cilantro. Serve as a spread with crackers.

Note: cilantro also tastes great with the chutney and almond topping.

Hi Kathy, yes this recipe can be made without a microwave - let the cream cheese stand at room temperature until slightly softened.
