  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 1 ounce package dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/2 pound cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup crumbled bacon pieces I used the packaged Crumbled 100% Real Bacon from Costco
  • 2-3 jalapenos seeded and chopped (I used 3)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • buttery crackers


  • Mix the sour cream with ranch dressing mix in a bowl until smoothly combined
  • Add the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, and jalapenos to the bowl, and mix together until thoroughly blended
  • Chill the mixture for 5 minutes, then shape into a ball
  • Place the pecans into a shallow bowl, and roll all sides of the cheese ball in the pecans to coat
  • Serve immediately with buttery crackers
