Mexican Cheese Ball.........

This is one of my favorite cheese balls as it has a bit of spice to it. I love adding grated pepper jack cheese to a lot of my dips and cheese balls. It's just the right amount of heat for me. Then rolling it in Doritos Nacho chips adds another layer of flavor. Adding a pumpkin stem makes it perfect for fall entertaining. Hope you enjoy it.
Mexican Cheese Ball 
1 cup pepper jack cheese
4 ounces cream cheese
3 Tbsp salsa, any kind you like
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Zest of 1 lime
1 cup Doritos chips 
Place cheeses, salsa, parsley and lime zest into a food processor and blend for 4-5 seconds. Spread a piece of plastic wrap onto the counter and pour the mixture into the middle of it. Gather up all four corners and twist, so the plastic is tightly wrapped around the ball of cheese. Place in refrigerator to firm up for about 1-2 hours. Place crushed Doritos Nacho chips into a bowl. Remove the ball of cheese from the plastic and roll it around in the Doritos chips. Serve with a variety of your favorite crackers, flat bread and cut veggies such as cucumber, celery and red bell pepper. Yields 6-8 servings
Till next time..........
