For a slightly spicy cheeseball with lots of zing, try this easy recipe. If you don't like cilantro, you can roll the ball in shredded Cheddar cheese or fresh chopped parsley.

This is the first cheeseball I have made, and it has received rave reviews. It makes a very large portion, so I now make two cheeseballs and freeze one. (You could also halve the recipe). I have found that the half portion is sufficient for any party. I modified the recipe a bit, using 1 cup Mexican blend cheese and skipping the pepper jack (didn't have it on hand). I also skipped the jalapenos, but added bacon and green onions. I doubled the Worcestershire sauce and rolled the cheeseball in the shredded cheese as the author suggested. The green peppers add great color and crunch. I highly recommend this recipe, it's easy and different. Thanks Anita!

I used this recipe for a Bachlorette party. Instead of making it into a ball, I formed it into another shape. Everyone loved it & the bride to be couldn't stop laughing. It tasted great too!

I've now been requested to bring this cheeseball to two parties since I first served it. It's got just enough "kick" but doesn't make you run for a drink and it is easy to spread. I also left out the jalepenos and replaced them with green onion. I was out of worchester sauce so used extra virgin olive oil and it gave it a nice flavor as well.
