Superbowl 2017 will be held in my hometown – Houston, Texas. Even though the Texans lost in the playoffs and WON’T be going to the Superbowl, we always enjoy the game with friends. And what’s a Superbowl Party without a special Superbowl Snack? That’s where my Cajun Cheeseball comes in.Cajun Cheeseball. The perfect make-ahead snack for your Superbowl party! Click To Tweet
The recipe for my Cajun Cheeseball came from a friend many years ago. It’s a little spicy and tastes great with Ritz crackers and a cold Lone Star beer. When I serve it, it is usually DEVOURED in a short amount of time!
The best part is that it can be made ahead and frozen. No standing over the stove or preparing food once your guests arrive! Give it a try!
