The Laughing Cow® provided me with product for this review. However, thoughts and opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the brand.

Serve this recipe with these Thin Sliced Sirloin Steaks

Last week I received a fun “summer snacking package” in the mail from Laughing Cow Cheese. I know you have heard of Laughing Cow! An abundance of yummy flavors (Creamy Swiss…Garlic and Herb…Queso Fresco & Chipotle) and the creamy consistency is the best. Ahem, especially at 35 calories a wedge! 

In the past I have used Laughing Cow for stuffed mushrooms…they are delicious and cuts out the need for cream cheese or other high fat ingredients. With this package, I was charged with making a fun new recipe with the products for the summer! I was sent three flavors, so I am challenging myself to come up with a fun new recipe for each.

First up: Queso Fresco & Chipotle Laughing Cow Cheese. A fun and rich flavor with a slight amount of heat. My taste testers loved it (yes- mom and husband). I decided to make a creamy steak topping for this first go around. Although I did put the leftovers on my husbands sandwich today…and will likely be adding it to our eggs tomorrow morning. So many great uses!

Queso Fresco & Chipotle LC + Fresh Cilantro + 2 chipotle peppers blended….on top of a sirloin steak. So good! I’d love for you to leave a comment with YOUR favorite way to have Laughing Cow! Outside of making meals…I love it with carrots : )

9 thoughts on “Cilantro Chipotle Creamy Steak Topping”

  1. I am not a steak eater, but mainly because I can’t get the tender consistency when I try to make it myself and most restaurants don’t have the tenderness to my liking either; however, I will have to give it a try with this Laughing Cow topping.

    I LOVE Laughing Cow cheese and buy probably three or four containers of it every couple of weeks. For a snack, I get a piece of fat free smoked turkey luncheon meat, put a wedge of French Onion Laughing Cow cheese, then a slice of 2% American cheese. I mash the sliced cheese on top of the Laughing Cow cheese in order to spread the wedge across the launcheon meat. Sometimes I put a row of spicey mustard and sometimes not. I then roll up the luncheon meat and I have the best tasting wrap (without carbs).

    I also like to microwave some turkey pepperoni’s for about 15-20 seconds on a plate in a single layer, which makes them crunchy (like potato chips), then dip them in a Laughing Cow cheese wedge.

    Canned chicken or canned Tuna: Instead of mixing up mayonnaise and mustard, just mix a wedge or two of Garlic and Herb or the Sun Ripened Tomato Laughing Cow cheese and add a chopped boiled egg and onion and you have a flavorful chicken or tuna salad.

  2. I mix a wedge of garlic herb laughing cow cheese with half a can of tuna (so 2 wedges for a whole can if you’re making it for 2) instead of high fat mayo. Super yummy!

    My friend Marla cuts a small avocado in half, removes pit and puts a wedge of laughing cow cheese in the hole then mashes it up inside the skin and uses it as a dip for red and green peppers.

  3. We love stuffed mushrooms so I’ll have to try laughing cow in those instead of the 1/3 less fat cream cheese I usually use!

  4. I would swap whipped light cream cheese if you have access to it – and around 1 tbsp per 1 wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese
