Often for New Years Eve I like making lots of snacks and goodies. What a glorious way to ring in the New Year, with those new resolutions of losing all that extra holiday weight. (just kidding). We LOVE cheese in our house (it has been hard going shopping without coming home with cheese). I am not sure how our favorite foods will taste without cheese...but we are going to try it. However until then I better use up what cheese we do have lingering so we don't have it later. This cheese ball is delicious.

16oz cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (an addition of pepperjack-mmm)
3 T minced onions
3 T salsa
1 t ground cumin
2 cups nacho chips, crushed (I used tomato and herb)
In your mixing bowl combine cheeses, salsa, onion and cumin. Place mixture in plastic wrap. Form into a ball. Chill at least 2-4 hours. When ready to serve roll in crushed chips. Serve with chips, veggies, etc.
