I and my family love cheeseballs. I make them often for parties and birthdays, and without fail everyone loves them. So of course I had to find a new way to create an awesome flavor combination.
1 Block Cream Cheese, room temperature
1/2T Dried Parsley
1 tsp. Lime Juice
3/4 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
3/4 tsp./ Cumin
Cayenne to taste
2 Jalapenos, seeded and diced small (reserve 1/2 T)
1/2 C Cheddar Cheese, grated
8 Pieces Bacon, cooked crisp, crumbled (reserve 2 pieces for later)
1/4 C Cheddar Cheese, grated
-In medium bowl, using hand mixer, whisk the cream cheese. Add in Worcestershire sauce, lime juice and seasonings, ensure well blended.
-Mix in 1/2 C Cheese, 6 slices of bacon crumbles and jalapenos.
-Mix 1/4 C Cheese, 2 slices of crumbles and leftover jalapenos on a plate.
-Form cheese mixture into a ball, coat in mixture on plate. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to over night. Enjoy!
*Can use poblano peppers to lessen the heat of the finished product.
