I made this cheese spread for a Christmas party, and everyone thought it was so cute! It has a Mexican flare, is very tasty and is surprisingly easy to make.

How fun this was and so simple, yet very impressive. I will definitely make this again and the Mexican cheese blend combined with the green chilis was a wonderful flavor to this Texas transplant and my Texan friends. Thanks Lucky Clover
