2 blocks (16 oz.) Organic Valley cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup Organic Valley sour cream
1 package Simply Organic Dry Ranch Dressing Mix
1-2 organic jalapenos, seeds and membranes removed, minced
6-7 slices Beeler’s bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
2 cups shredded hickory smoked cheddar
4-5 organic green onions, diced
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Pinch Kosher salt
1 cup bulk pecans, minced
1 slice mozzarella or white cheddar
In a large bowl, add your softened cream cheese and sour cream together, mix to combine. Add in your dry ranch mix and stir to combine.
Fold in your jalapenos, bacon, cheese, and green onions.
Season with pepper and a pinch of salt.
Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and sit your cheese ball mixture on top. Shape into a football shape with your hands. Wrap up and place in your fridge overnight.
Just before serving, gently add the minced pecans to your cheese ball.
Place on serving plate/tray.
Slice your mozzarella into a longer strip and then 8 smaller strips.
Lay the longer strip down the middle (lace) and place the 8 smaller strips (cross stitches) over that.
