Pumpkin Shaped Cheese Ball


  • 1 8 oz pkg of cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup mayo
  • 2 drops of tabasco *I usually use more than 3 drops
  • ½ tsp mustard powder
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 100 g deli ham roughly chopped
  • Doritos crushed
  • Stem of a bell pepper


  1. Mix the cream cheese and Mayo until smooth. Then add tabasco, mustard powder, onions, cheese and ham and mix until combined.
  2. Scoop the mixture onto plastic wrap and use the wrap to form into a pumpkin-shaped ball. Chill the ball for at least 2 hours.
  3. Once chilled, unwrap the cheese ball and roll in crushed doritos and press a bell pepper stem into the top.
