We are starting Super Bowl festivities early on Acadiana's Morning News. We started with Kim's World-Famous Cheese Ball. This one is a show-stopper and a frequent request of Rob's mom, Kim. (Hence the name!) Try it at your party this weekend.


2 (8oz) Pkgs Cream Cheese, Softened

3 1/2 c. Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1 (1oz) Pkg of Ranch Dressing Mix

2 c. Chopped Pecans (optional)


In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese and dressing mix.

Form into one large ball or two smaller balls.

Roll in chopped pecans to coat surface.

Wrap in clear wrap and refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.
