“We really enjoy having cheese balls on hand during the holiday season. I created this cheese ball recipe for our new year eve party and was a huge hit. The addition of Knorr Vegetable Soup mix added a nice flavor. I also used this cheese ball as a filling for jalapeno poppers... another great idea.”
2 cheese balls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. I use a rolling pin to slightly crush the bag of vegetable soup mix before I open it.
  2. Mix it up a bit so when you measure it out you will get part of the seasonings and part of the vegetables.
  3. Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, jack cheese, Swiss cheese, soup mix, onion, red pepper, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice and ground red pepper.
  4. Form cheese mixture into 2 balls and roll in ground almonds (or pecans) and press into ball to coat it well.
  5. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to blend.
  6. This cheese ball will freeze well if desired.
  7. Flavors are best if served at room temperature.
  8. Serve with your favorite assortment of crackers.
  9. This cheese ball makes a great filling for Jalapeno poppers.
