I made this on Christmas eve and it was devoured in 0.5 seconds. I have to admit they were extremely delicious, the addition of jalapenos, crispy bacon and dried cranberries is life changing!
Here’s the recipe.
Jalapeno Popper Cheese Balls
Ingredients for cheeseballs
1 cup cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated finely
1/2 teapsoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Handful of finely chopped chives
Salt and pepper to taste
6 rashers finely chopped crispy bacon
1/4 cup finely chopped jalapenos
1/4 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
1. Mix in all the ingredients for the cheeseballs.
2. Roll into balls and refrigerate for a minimum of an hour to firm up.
3. Mix together all the ingredients for the coating and roll the cheeseballs in them until fully coated and serve immediately.
4. Top with whole tortilla chips instead of the usual toothpicks.
