Cheese Ball

I giggle every time I say Cheese Ball. Childish, I know. I can't help it!!

This recipe came from a para-pro at my school. She made it for a baby shower and I had to have the recipe. I'm usually not a huge fan of cheese balls, but this one is so good. I think it's the pineapple...I don't know.

I've had this recipe for awhile now and finally made it to take to a family dinner. It made a lot. There were 8 of us that were eating it and it was only half gone when we started dinner. It could probably be cut in half if you didn't need so much. It was a big cheese ball! :)

This needs to sit over night, so make sure you have time to do that before you make this one.
We were in a rush, so I didn't get to take any really good pictures. :(

Cheese Ball

2 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained
2 tbsp. chopped green onions
3/4 c. chopped bell pepper (I used red.)
1 tbsp All Seasoning Salt
2 c. chopped pecans (I used walnuts.)

Save 1 cup of the nuts to roll in!

1. Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate over night.
2. Roll into a ball and roll in the reserved nuts.
3. Serve with crackers.
