Mexican Cheese Ball

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

There are so many cheese ball recipes and so many Mexican dip recipes, but I'd never seen a Mexican cheese ball, so I had to try it. DEEEElish! It's great served with tortilla chips or those extra big Scoops corn chips.

This was a great recipe for Holiday Appitizers. I have had to make it 5 times since Thanksgiving.
