Christmas, or Any Time Chipped Beef Cheese Ball

"I am terrible about not asking for a recipe, I was watching a girlfriend make this and i just remembered the ingredients. Not sure if i got the amounts right but I have fiddled with it for years and this seems the best. You could also cover it with nuts, or for a Daytona 500 party, I shaped it with a ring mold, covered it with finely chopped black olives and called it a Cheese Tire!"

  1. This is just like the cheese ball my Uncle Toby has made for decades. Soooooo yummy! Thanks for posting!
  2. This is the same one my mom makes and it is TO DIE FOR. We eat this all year round with any type of cracker--ritz is my personal favorite:) Thank you for posting this b/c I never know the exact measurements and I have to end up calling my mom who tells me "a dash here, a drop there". I omitted the parsley and pimiento simply b/c I didn't have it-but I will have to give it a try sometime. This also makes for a beautiful appetizer! OH! And you can cut calories by using a reduced fat cream cheese and a whole wheat cracker. thanks so much Chilepepper!
