Who doesn't love a little cheese and crackers? A cheese ball is even better! This Perfect Fall Cheese Ball is a little of all of that - perfect, cheesy, and delicious with crackers.
This is a fun spin on a fancy cheese ball, perfect for the laid-back nature of fall. With a Doritos crust and a topper from a green or red pepper, this ball is perfectly autumn-themed and taking on the look of a pumpkin. It won't be looking pretty for long, for this cheese ball is so yummy, you won't be able to stop taking bites!
- 16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
- 3 tablespoons minced onion
- 3 tablespoons salsa
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 cups nacho cheese chips, crumbled
- Top of 1 bell pepper for stem garnish
With a mixer, combine cream cheese, cheddar, onion, salsa and cumin. Mix until creamy.
Scoop mixture onto plastic wrap and use wrap to form a ball and chill for at least 2 hours. Optionally, wrap ball in a few rubber bands to form the ridges of a pumpkin.
When ready to serve, roll ball into the crushed nacho chips and place bell pepper stem on top. Serve with chips, vegetables or pretzels!
