I made a bacon jalapeño one for thanksgiving. It was awesome.
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch of cayenne
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 jalapeños, stems and seeds removed, diced, divided
6 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled, divided (about 6 ounces)
Salt to taste
1/4 cup chopped pecans, roasted
Mix together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, cilantro, garlic, cumin, cayenne, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, half of the diced jalapeños and half of the crumbled cooked bacon.
Place the roasted pecans and remaining diced jalapeños and bacon on a plate. Stir together so well mixed. Roll into a ball then roll in the pecan and jalapeño mixture until completely covered. Chill at least one hour.
