Easy Cheese Ball - needs to refrigerate so you need to do ahead if you want to eat it at a specific time
*adapted from Kraft Foods
2 pkg (8oz) Cream Cheese (I use the low fat and it works but I don't recommend the fat free)
8oz (about 2 cups) Shredded (grated) Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. finely chopped red bell pepper
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. lemon juice
Dash of salt and ground red pepper (optional)
1 cup chopped pecans
Beat cream cheese and cheddar cheese until blended. Mix with other ingredients except pecans. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Shape into a ball and roll in the pecans. Serve with crackers.
