  • 2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, slightly softened
  • 2 ounces sharp Cheddar, grated (about 3/4 cup)
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed orange nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips (from about 2.1 oz. chips)
  • 4 large ripe pitted black olives
  • 1 small dill pickle


  1. 1. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, Cheddar, scallions and Worcestershire. Form into a ball, then flatten slightly on top to form a pumpkin shape. Make an indentation on top where stem will be placed. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for at least 1 hour.
  2. 2. Place tortilla chip crumbs in a shallow bowl and roll cheese ball in crumbs. Press crumbs on any white patches. Place on a serving plate. Cut 2 olives into 4 triangles, 2 for eyes and 2 for the corners of a mouth. Cut remaining 2 olives into squares for teeth. Attach eyes and mouth to cheese ball with toothpicks. Cut pickle in half and place on top, forming a stem. Serve right away or cover loosely and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with crackers, toasted baguette slices or pita crisps.
