Hot Pecan Beef Spread Recipe

A friend shared this appetizer with me, and I've made it often over the years. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator and can be reheated or served cold.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (3 ounces) dried beef, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • Assorted crackers or pita chips


  • 1. In a small skillet, saute pecans in butter until toasted; set aside. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Add the sour cream, garlic powder and pepper; mix well. Stir in the beef, onion and green pepper.
  • 2. Spoon into a greased shallow 3-cup baking dish. Sprinkle with toasted pecans. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Serve with crackers or pita chips. Yield: 2 cups.
