Welcome to this Week's Giveaway

Can you believe the season is already half over? I bet some of the coaches would like to start the season over, a few players too. Looks like there is a quarterback switch-a-roo going around on many fields...

Anyway, back inside the comfort of many homes are where we find some of the tastiest and best foods for game-day football watching. I know that is where some of my all time favorite snacks and foods are, lined up right in front of the television.

Congratulations to Marguerite for winning last week's game with her Cajun tailgating faves recipes.

This Week's Game-Day Recipe fr0m my kitchen:

Gather 'round folks because if you wait too long, this will be gone - it is that good. 
I often double the recipe making two.
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 refrigerate for about an hour to firm. Shape into a ball, then roll in the nuts and chill several more hours. Serve with crackers.


  1. Good luck to everyone. My weekend whoosh by so quickly that I hardly get to see football, let alone cook something for the game. Ok, I did see the Bears on Monday night (bummer). I love your cheese ball!

  2. Love this one Drick! Of course cheese is my favorite food. Add those green chilis and chicken YUM!!

  3. The cheese ball looks great! I am sorry I was out of town all last week, if I missed the voting... I was in 4th quarter meetings 14 hours a day, eat and sleep... ugh! but back on track now... so glad I made it to week eight! Thanks for hosting!

  4. This cheese ball looks amazing and soooo good! Love all of the ingredients and I will be trying it soon! Thanks for the great recipe and for the shout out! I am honored and can't believe that I won!
