Secret Recipe Club – Spicy Pecan Cheeseball

October 17, 2011 in appetizer by amanda

Yup, it’s that time again! Another Secret Recipe Club reveal day!

This month I was assigned to Savour the Senses which is written by Jenny. I knew I would like Jenny as soon as I visited her about page and saw the picture of her eating a mango (I think?) off a giant fork. Now that is a girl I’d like to hang out with. Jenny has a ton of recipes that looked awesome and uhh… hey Jenny, I’m not too far from you if you’re ever hosting a dinner party and need guests. *ahem*

I found this recipe for Spicy Cheddar Pecan Dip and it immediately reminded me of my favorite cheeseball. So of course I had to turn the dip into a cheeseball! And it was…

Wait for it.

Ballin’. ;)

I couldn’t keep myself away from this cheeseball. Ridiculously good. In that cheeseball that I linked to above, strawberry jam is spread over the cheeseball so the spicy pepper jelly was a great way to switch things up. I’m already excited to make this one again!

Spicy Pecan Cheeseball

adapted from Savour the Sense

Ingredients

1 cup sharp cheddar, shredded
1 cup Monterey Jack, shredded
1 cup pecans, chopped
2 tablespoons minced green onions
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 jar hot pepper jelly

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients but the hot pepper jelly and form into a ball. Spread jelly over the ball. (You may need to warm the jelly I had to thin mine out with about a tablespoon of water to get it to spread.) Serve with crackers and whatever jelly you have leftover.
