Spicy Pumpkin Cheese Ball

Spicy Pumpkin Cheese Ball

It’s Football Food Friday again, which means that the sweet, sweet weekend is so close. The fun thing about this week’s recipe is not only great for football parties, but it’d also be absolutely perfect for a Halloween party. Or, since Halloween is on a Thursday this year, you could serve it for a Halloween/Thursday Night Football party, and it would be the most perfect thing ever. This fun little cheese ball is kind of taco flavored, which as I talked about last week, is one of my favorite flavors of all time. Served with blue corn chips, it looks perfect festive and Halloween-y (Halloweenie?)
