Preparing the Celery
For this recipe, you will be using 5 long celery stalks. If these stalks are not trimmed, you will need to trim the leafy tops off them. Next cut the celery stalks into about 3-inch-long pieces. This should give you 10-15 celery sticks to work with.
Making the Cream Cheese Filling
To make the filling for the celery wraps you will need to take 4 oz of cream cheese spread or whipped cream cheese and mix with 1 rounded Tablespoon of Chugwater Chili Dip & Dressing Mix. Next, it is time to assemble your celery wraps.
Assembling the Celery Wraps
When assembling the celery wraps you will need to gather up your favorite lunch meat slices or you can choose to do a variety of meats if you are serving at a gathering. Common meat slices used in this recipe are prosciutto, ham, and turkey.
Take a celery stick and spread the seasoned cream cheese mixture in the curve of the celery stick. Fill the entire middle.
Next, take a slice of your favorite meat and wrap it around the celery and cream cheese. The meat should stick to the cream cheese but if it tries to fall off or apart then you can use a toothpick to secure it in place.
Serving the Celery Wraps
Now it is time to serve your new celery treat. This is a great recipe to use as a snack, lunch, or appetizer. You can take this treat along with you on a trip to the mountains or beach. Take them to a potluck you have been invited to or pack them as your lunch for the day to work. They are even perfect treats to send with kids for school lunches.
