    very good

    This was a big hit at my Christmas Eve family dinner. There was Mexican food galore and the cheese ball went very well. The peppers are best diced very finely and using a Kitchen Aid electric mixer to mix it well made this turn out very good. The lime zest was a different but refreshing twist.

    I don't like bell peppers so I used red and green jalapenos instead ... YUMMY and spicy!
