#NaPhoPoMo Day 2...Kitchen Creations!

I love creativity
AND I LOVE
creating in my kitchen...

so THIS
Pumpkin Shaped Cheese Ball 
is the perfect combination for me!
Day 2





















It is just PERFECT for a Harvest Party...
soooo tasty!!!
And super easy!

Blend together:
2 blocks (16 oz) room-temperature Cream Cheese
1 1/2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2-3 Tbls dried minced onion
1/4 C of your favorite salsa
3 tsp ground cumin
a dash of salt and pepper

Then grab some plastic wrap and plop your cheesy mixture right in the middle, form the mixture into a nice pumpkin-shaped ball (with a flat bottom to rest on)  making sure it is wrapped well.
Then pop it in your fridge for a couple hours to chill.
If you are in a bit of a hurry, just throw it in the freezer for 30 minutes or so.

To serve, unwrap from plastic wrap and roll in crushed Nacho Doritios...
(These give a nice orange glow to your pumpkin!)
I find it helpful to pat some on the sides of the pumpkin if it isn't sticking well when rolling.
(For a super easy way to crush your Doritos...
get a gallon sized ziploc bag, toss a few chips in and start smashin'!)
No mess...  :)

For the finishing touches ~
remove the top of a bell pepper and place it right atop your pumpkin,
PERFECTION!  
Then add a few chips around the edges of your pumpkin.

Sure to be a crowd pleaser!!!
