WHOLLY® Jalapeño Popper Guacamole Cheese Ball

Jalapeño Popper Guacamole Cheese Ball
A great appetizer that’s easy to make and easy to love. Create one big cheese ball or serve in small bites on crackers for a crowd pleaser.


1. Place cling wrap on counter and pour bowl contents on top. Tightly close the cling wrap to seal in contents, in the shape of a ball.

2. Chill in fridge until set (about two hours).

3. Remove and unwrap the guacamole cheese ball. Roll it in the separated shredded cheese and bacon bits.

4. Serve right away with crackers.
