Chicken & Chiles Cheese Ball

Forgoing the usual Friday format, today’s fish recipes are replaced with another tailgate event.
In state rivals, Alabama plays Auburn in a fight the folks around here live for 24/7, 365 days a year. The rivalry can split families apart. You either bleed crimson or blue - there is no in between. It will cause people to cuss ya and normally at some point in the year, will cause you to even cuss them.


Here is a cheese snack we will be enjoying.

Chicken & Chiles Cheese Ball


1 -8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped cooked chicken (or 1 -5 oz can boned chicken, well drained)
1 -4 oz can diced green chiles, well drained
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon chicken flavored instant bouillon
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts

In a bowl, combine all ingredients except nuts. Mix well and shape into a ball. Roll in the nuts and chill several hours. Serve with crackers.

  2. I love anything with green chile and I'm thinking the chicken granules really kick the flavor of this up. I'd be spreading any leftovers on a bagel in the morning, too.
