Cheese Ball However You Please: Makin’ It in Mexico

cheese ballPARTY, PARTY, PARTY. They abound this time of year and you know what goes with it; “Bring Your Own Booze and an Appetizer To Share”. Everyone loves cheese and crackers and cheese balls are so easy to make and festive.

Mix together 8 oz softened cream cheese, 1 cup grated cheese (any type you like and ANY Mexican cheese will work – use goat cheese for the sweeter ones), and 2 TBSP softened butter either by hand or with an electric mixer or in a food processor.

Add 1/4 cup of one finely chopped ingredient from the first column and 2 TBSP from the second column, mix well and roll into a ball with wet hands, wax paper, or plastic wrap.

Place ball in refrigerator for 2 hours to firm.

Then go across to the third column and roll the refrigerated ball in 1/2 cup of the topping (finely chopped) adjacent to the ingredient you added to your cheese mixture.

Garlic Dry ranch dressing Cilantro
Any dried fruit Shredded coconut Almonds
Lemon or Orange Peel Oregano Pecans
