I (Kirstin) tend towards the ‘sweet treat’ end of the bring-a-snack spectrum.  When I hear, “bring an appetizer or dessert to share,” we almost always end up in the dessert category.  However, last night I had a hankering for something savory and stumbled across Jordi’s green chile cheeseball recipe in my files.  Yummy.  Goodness.  Such yummy goodness, in fact, that I thought I’d share the recipe with y’all.  If you’re needing something delicious and easy to take to a get-together this summer, make this.  You won’t regret it.

Green Chile Cheeseball

8 oz. block cream cheese
8 oz.  cheddar cheese, shredded
1 small can green chiles (roughly 1/3 cup)
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 tbs ranch dressing mix
1 tsp taco seasoning
1/2 cup crushed pecans

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Using your hands, form into a ball shape (this part will be a bit messy), place in a bowl and refridgerate to let it set. 15-20 minutes. Place crushed pecan on a flat surface (like a cookie sheet) and roll the ball in pecans until covered.
