PEPPERS, ONIONS AND CREAM CHEESE CUBES

This is an unusual side with a normal peppers and onion stir-fry and at the end cubes of cream cheese are added and briefly and gently heated. The soft, molten  cream cheese cubes in the stir-fried vegetables add interest, texture contrast and flavor, as well as they make the side more satiating..  Try it sometime!
