What’s In This Retro Stuffed Celery Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Celery – I like using organic celery, and I usually buy a big head and chop up the individual stalks myself.
  • Cream Cheese – I use a regular cream cheese, not whipped.
  • Chili Sauce – the secret ingredient in my family’s stuffed celery recipe!  You can usually find chili sauce near the ketchup or the cocktail sauce in the grocery store. I’ve also ordered it online when I can’t find it at the store – I like using chili sauce. 
  • Onion – for a little extra flavor in the spread.
  • Walnuts
