I love a classic cheese ball that I can dip my crunchy chips in but now I need a spicy one! This Mexican Cheese Ball with Spicy Tortilla Chips is perfect! The kick of hot and spicy taco seasoning and the crunch of cumin and chili powder-dusted tortilla chips makes this a tasty combination!
With the “Big Game” just around the corner, all die-hard football lovers are gearing up with their game day recipes and party planning! Everyone loves cheese, so a Mexican cheese ball is a perfect appetizer to serve! The bonus is that you can make it ahead of time and just unwrap and serve at the “Big Game!”
To get my recipe started, I grabbed some chopped green chilies, some taco seasoning – hot and spicy, of course! I even added an avocado to add to the cheese ball which makes the texture even creamier!
Not only are we starting off with classic cream cheese, we are adding some jalapeno and Mexican spiced cheese. But I am adding in 2 teaspoons of the hot and spicy taco seasoning and a can of chopped green chilies!
To enjoy this spicy cheese ball, we need some crispy chips that can hold up to the cheese ball! I used some tortillas, dusted them with cumin and chili powder and baked them in the oven until fragrant. They make the perfect accompaniment to the Mexican Cheese Ball.
