Ingredients

  • 1 8 oz block plain cream cheese softened
  • 1 8 oz container onion and chive cream cheese softened
  • 1 8 oz can sweetened crushed pineapple drained
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 3 Tbsp green bell pepper finely diced
  • 3 Tbsp red bell pepper finely diced
  • 1 green onion finely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped pecans toasted
  • 2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese divided

Instructions

  • Using an electric mixer, whip together the cream cheese, onion and chive cream cheese, crushed pineapple, and garlic salt.
  • Stir in the green bell pepper, red bell pepper, green onion, pecan pieces and ½ cup of shredded cheese by hand.
  • Shape into 1 large or 2 small balls and roll in the remaining shredded cheddar cheese. [Note: If making 2 smaller cheeseballs extra shredded cheese for rolling may be needed.]
  • Wrap in plastic wrap, press to shape and refrigerate for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight, until firm.
  • Serve with crackers, pita chips or vegetables.

Notes

Alternatively, you can leave the pecans out of the cheeseball and roll the cheeseball in toasted pecans instead. You'll need approximately 1 cup toasted pecan pieces. [To toast: Place on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Toast in a preheated 350°F oven for 6-8 minutes. Cool completely]
