It’s officially here~ the season of joy, love, giving..and snacks! And by snacks, I mean CHEESE! At least for now, I’m talking about Cheese…we can talk about cake, chocolate and booze another time..no worries there..lol!
But right now it’s all about itty-bitty, mini, tiny, adorable, single serving, pop-in-your-mouth cheese balls that will bring the ooh’s and the AWW’s to your table! Each little flavor packed cheese ball is slightly spicy, and totally crunchy with the unique and flavorful addition of yep..Doritos! I rolled those little ball babies in crushed Doritos because…uh,, YUM!
~Make a batch of these balls and you will be the most popular hostess on the block! 🙂
What you’ll need for approx. 12-15 balls:
1-8oz. block of cream cheese..room temp.
1 tbsp. Rotel OR salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup crushed Doritos
crush up the doritos, either in a food processor, or by hand~ pour them into a shallow bowl and set aside.
Mix up the cream cheese, cheddar, and salsa/rotel until well blended, but don’t over mix it.
Now, scoop out approx. 1 tsp. or so of the mixture and roll it in your hands until it forms a ball.
Drop the rolled balls into the doritos crumbs and coat them evenly…
Gently place them on some wax paper to set up for a few minutes, into the fridge if you’re serving them later.
Serve them with a slice of jalapeño on top if you so choose, and some crackers of course…
AND dig in! ~Enjoy! 🙂
These look soooooooo yummy!
I wonder what these would be like deep fried?!
Please do not follow this recipe as written. Follow the pictures instead. One cup of salsa one cup of cream cheese = salso/cream cheese soup. The picture shows something more like a tablespoon of salsa….maybe?? This was an epic fail of an appetizer for me.
The recipe does say one tablespoon of salsa
These are great if you serve them shortly after assembling. I made some one evening for a Christmas party at work the next day & the Doritos got soft. I gave the recipe another try & added minced jalapenos to the mix as well as served them soon after assembling & they were much better.
Great point! 🙂
WAY too much salsa!
Agree with Angela, cut down to 1or 2 tbsp salsa or way too liquid…..otherwise, great!
It is only one tbsp. of salsa ..on mobile devices the error fix never updated..lol. One tbsp. of salsa is correct. 🙂
