Heat soup until warm, about 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from heat; add dissolved gelatin and cream cheese. Stir until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients, and add salt and pepper as desired. Mix well. Pour mixture into a well-buttered mold or bowl. Refrigerate for six hours or longer. To remove the spread from the mold, flip the mold or bowl upside down and rest on a serving dish. The mold will separate from the spread in a minute or so. Serve with crackers.
