Cheese Ball

A lady I work with brought this homemade cheese ball in to share. Now you must understand I am not a cheese ball kinda gal, but this was YUMMY!!!

12 oz. Yellow Cheese
2 - 8 0z. packages of Cream Cheese
1 Med. Jar Spanish Olives - finely chopped
1 Green Pepper - finely chopped
6 Green Onions with tops - finely chopped
1 Jar Dried Beef (optional) - finely chopped
1/2 Cup Pecans or Almonds - finely chopped

Grate cheese, add cream cheese (allow to be room temperature to facilitate mixing), add veggies and beef (optional).

Mix using a bread beater or your hands. Form into 3 - 4 balls and roll each in nuts. Wrap cheese balls in waxed paper and refrigerate until use.

Serve with firm crackers (Wheat Thins were tasty)
