It's Football Food Friday again, which means that the sweet, sweet weekend is so close. The fun thing about this week's recipe is not only great for football parties, but it'd also be absolutely perfect for a Halloween party. Or, since Halloween is on a Thursday this year, you could serve it for a Halloween/Thursday Night Football party, and it would be the most perfect thing ever. This fun little cheese ball is kind of taco flavored, which as I talked about last week, is one of my favorite flavors of all time. Served with blue corn chips, it looks perfect festive and Halloween-y (Halloweenie?)
Serves a party
2 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tbsp salsa
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp minced jalapeno
1 cup Doritos, crushed
stem from a bell pepper
blue corn chips, for serving
Use a mixer to blend together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, salsa, cumin, onion powder, and jalapeno.
Scoop the mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap and form into a pumpkin-shaped ball. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Place the crushed Doritos in a small bowl.
Roll the cheese ball in the Doritos until fully covered. Place the bell pepper stem in the top of the cheese ball.
Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
