  • Spoon
  • Small plate

  1. Place cheese spread, shredded Cheddar-style cheese, cream cheese-style spread, pimentos, green onion, cayenne pepper, ½ tsp. chili powder and ½ tsp. paprika in a food processor. Cover and pulse until combined and almost smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.

  2. Transfer mixture to a large sheet of plastic wrap. Bring up edges of plastic wrap to form cheese mixture into a soft ball; place in a small bowl and freeze for 1 hour or refrigerate up to 2 days.

  3. Before serving, remove the plastic wrap from the chilled cheese mixture. Shape mixture into a ball with your hands or the back of a spoon. (Cheese ball will be soft.)
