Halloween Nacho Jack-o-Lantern

INGREDIENTS

  • Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar
  • 3 tablespoons minced onions
  • 2 tablespoons prepared salsa (your favorite kind will do)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno (without seeds, unless you want it spicy, then include the seeds)
  • 12 Doritos, original flavor, crushed
  • 1 nice-looking stem of a bell pepper (reserve the pepper for another use)
  • Black bean chips, crackers or crudite, for serving

DIRECTIONS

Put the cream cheese, Cheddar, onions, salsa, cumin and jalapeno into the bowl of a mixer, and blend thoroughly. Form into a pumpkin-like shape, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Before serving, roll the cheese ball in the crushed Doritos. Arrange the cheese ball on a plate, and press the bell pepper stem into the top – it should like a mini pumpkin stem. Serve the cheese ball with black bean chips, crackers or crudites. Recipe found at: http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/nacho-jack-o-lantern-cheese-ball.html
