Pumpkin Cheese Ball

Materials

What you need:

  • 16 ounces Cream Cheese Softened
  • 2 Cups Cheddar Cheese Shredded
  • 3 Tablespoons Onion Minced
  • ½ Cup Salsa
  • 2 Cups Crushed Cheese Tortilla Chips I used Nacho Cheese Doritos, Crushed
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper Stem If Desired

Preparation

This is a fantastic way to get the Halloween at home party started - a pumpkin cheese ball. This snack does not actually contain any pumpkin, but it is flavoured with sharp cheddar cheese, tangy cream cheese, and a hint of spicy salsa. Then it’s covered in Nacho Cheese Doritos! We think children of ALL ages will like this appetizer.

How to assemble:

  • Step 1: Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion, salsa, and cumin together until smooth and creamy.
  • Step 2: Place onto plastic wrap, and shape into a circle. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  • Step 3: Before serving roll in crushed tortilla chips.
  • Step 4: Top with a bell pepper step if desired.
