I cut the recipe in half, used green onions instead of peppers, and rolled it in walnuts instead of pecans. I thought it was great!

Really excellent recipe! I've been searching for a cheese ball recipe and this turned out great. I halved it and made one very nice ball, enough for a party of 10 people. I refrigerated overnight, then rolled in the toasted pecans 30 mins before serving. With the red and green ingredients, it really does look like Christmas.

Easy and delicious, what more could you hope for? Even my fussy eater loved it. Good without the green peppers too. Thanks, Karen!

My picky kids loved this! I did leave out the pimentoes for personal taste, and this tastes even better after a day in the frig. Thanks for sharing!

Simple and stuff I always have on hand. Made this for Christmas Eve which is mandatory by my mom to have a cheese ball that night!! I did use extra sharp cheddar. Everyone loved it.

This is a great little cheeseball to have in your arsenal. I added 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder to mine for extra flavor.

My family had been making this cheese ball recipe for years, however I had misplaced my copy. I am so glad to have found this recipe again. I halved the recipe and made it for us last night. I used chopped walnuts in place of the pecans since that was what I had on hand. Thanks Karen!

Excellent flavor!! Another big plus, this recipe is much more economical to make than most cheese balls. You can actually make this one without having to ask your banker for a loan! Karen, thank you for sharing your recipe!

I needed an appetizer that was quick and easy to serve to our Bible Study group tonight. This recipe was just perfect.....it was simple, I had the ingredients on hand and the result was pretty and tasted good. Everyone loved it. I will make this again in a couple of days for a dinner party...Thanks so much, Karen.
