    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    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.

      Not bad but not amazing either. If I made this again I would cut the recipe in half. I made it for a large party and while most of the other stuff on the table was gone, I still had about 3/4 of this cheese ball left.
