I just looked it up and its made by Philadelphia, the company that makes cream cheese. Evidently, they carry a line of cooking creams that have different flavors, They don't say whats in the Santa Fe but my guess is that it might be a bit spicy with some peppers. Its sold in the same area as the cream cheese. I am not sure what you could substitute for it since I don't know what it tastes like. Sorry if this is not much help.

Most of the ingredients used to flavor the Cooking Creme are already in the recipe: lime, onion, garlic, peppers.

I would try thinning some cream cheese with milk and maybe adding a little red bell pepper. I'm not familiar with this product but it looks to be about the consistency of sour cream.

I was on vacation and just got back, sorry for the delay in getting right back to you.
You could use cream cheese and then lace it with lime juice, organo, garllic, cilantro.
I was in a contest for Philly cream cheese and they sent me all 4 flavors of the cooking creme to try. The flavors are very concententrated. It is a new product and you will find it in the cream cheese section.
I am really liking the Sante Fe blend because it has the south west flavors in it. Makes a pretty good dip for chips too.
It is the consistancy of cream cheese because that is what it is. it is meant to add creaminess to a dish, and you just put a dollop in whatever you are cooking.
No I don't work for Philly :)

It's too bad the ingredient list is so very nasty.
