Nacho Pumpkin Cheese Ball Recipe
We served our Cheese Ball with some Triscuit Crackers I had in the pantry. You could serve this cheese ball up with your favorite crackers or veggies. My kiddos and hubby LOVED it. We snacked all weekend long on this one.
The ingredients needed for this yummy cheese ball are super simple. Grab some Cream Cheese, Shredded Cheese, Salsa, a few spices and some Doritos. I purchased some inexpensive Nacho Cheese Chips at Aldi (they are my kiddos favorite). For your stem you will need a green pepper to top this cute Cheese Ball. Super simple to whip up you will just need to allow for the time to chill.
8 oz softened Cream Cheese
2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/4 cup Salsa
1/2 tsp Cumin
2 cup Nacho Cheese Chips, crushed
Combine cream cheese, cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin and salsa. Mix until smooth and blended.
Form into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Roll ball in the crushed nacho chips.
Optionally, place bell pepper stem on top and score sides to look like pumpkin.
