I was asked to bring a cheese ball to a party but could not find a "new" recipe so I created this one. It has all the attributes of a great appetizer-salty, sweet, savory, creamy and fresh. The recipe is always requested and there is never a morsel left on the plate. It is not unusual to see people standing around gobbling it up, it is addictive! The presentation is colorful and fresh.
I hope you all enjoy!

How to Make Curried Mango Cheese Ball

Step-by-Step

  1. Whip cream cheese with curry powder. Stir in onion, pecans, raisins and bacon. Form into a ball and place in a covered container. Refrigerate overnight at a minimum.
  2. Place two tablespoons of red jalapeno jelly in a small dish and microwave 5-10 seconds until slightly melted. Toss diced mango with jelly.
  3. Immediately before serving, flatten cheese ball on a tray so it is more like a disk. Pour mango mixture on top and garnish with green onion flowers. Serve with buttery crackers and thin wheat crackers.
