Mamacita's Salsa Fresca Cheese Ball
Serves: party of 24+
Prep: 10 min
Inactive: 1+ hour
1 cup Mamacita's Salsa Fresca, well-drained (we recommend Spicy!)
3 8oz packages of softened cream cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley (or cilantro!)
First take softened cream cheese and mix into a bowl with a wooden spoon. Add the salt, garlic powder, and very well-drained Mamacita's Salsa Fresca—the less liquid the better to keep the ball firm. Once completely combined, place mixture on a large sheet of plastic wrap and carefully wrap it up, forming a ball as you go. Place on a plate in the fridge for 1 hour or more (even over night is fine) until more firm.
While the cheese ball firms or just before done, chop parsley. Once the cheese ball is firm and ready, unwrap and keep the shape by continuing to form it with your fingers, and place at the center of the plate. Sprinkle and place chopped parsley on the entire surface, letting it stick and cover the cheese ball. Keep in fridge until ready to serve with crackers, chips, or cut vegetables! Enjoy!
