It’s no secret that I’m not really much of a sports fan. Sure, I’ll happily tag along with my husband to a Browns or Cavs game from time to time, but I’m definitely not a die hard sports fanatic – especially when it comes to college sports, like basketball.
But for whatever reason, I end up filling out a March Madness bracket every single year. And since I know absolutely nothing about the NCAA, I base my picks solely on the name of the team. This year, Eric even got Elle in on the action by letting her make her own picks, and I’m pretty sure she’s still doing better than both of us.
One thing I can get behind regarding sports is the food. From French onion chip dip and sweet and spicy snack mix to this spicy taco cheese ball recipe, the snacks are where it’s at!
The great thing about this spicy taco cheese ball is that it comes together super fast, and only requires a few ingredients. Jalapeño cream cheese, shredded Mexican cheese, taco seasoning, a little fresh cilantro and crunchy Fisher Nuts pecans are all you need to create a delicious snack that’s perfect for entertaining or munching while watching action-packed hours of March Madness.
I choose to work with Fisher Nuts because it is one of the only brands of recipe nuts that are entirely preservative free. Nuts are perfect as they come off the tree, so I don’t see why we would ever need to mess with them. They add a perfect earthy crunch and goodness to this spicy taco cheese ball. Your guests will keep coming back for more!

Please can you advise how far in advance I can make this?

Hi, Debbie! I would think you could make it a day before you serve it. You may just want to do steps 1 through 3 and finish with steps 4 and 5 right before you serve. I hope you enjoy it!
