1 (1 oz. ) package ranch dressing mix
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese (I use neufchatel)
1 1/2 – 2 cups of chopped pecans
Mix dressing mix and Cheddar cheese into the cream cheese.
Shape the mixture into a ball. Roll the ball in the chopped nuts. Refrigerate covered until ready to serve along with carrots, celery or your favorite crackers.
