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.

love this cheeseball recipe! I make it into one big ball & use green onions instead of peppers.
