  • 16 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
  • cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 2 Tablespoons salsa
  • 1 cup nacho cheese tortilla chips (crushed)
  • 1 green bell pepper use stem


  • Blend together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion, and salsa.
  • Scoop onto plastic wrap and use the wrap to form the mixture into a 5-inch pumpkin-shaped ball; chill at least 2 hours (I chilled mine over night). To serve, unwrap, roll in crushed nacho-flavored tortilla chips and press a bell pepper stem into the top.
  • To make some pumpkin lines, I used some string, held it at the "pumpkin stem and pressed it into the pumpkin.
