"Forget it Manny, I'm never working for that sleazeball again! I'll just have to find another sleazeball."
Yes, I made a sleazeball...
2 packages of cream cheese softened
1 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
1 chopped jalapeno (or to your taste)
blend the cream cheese till smooth,
then slowly add your shredded cheese (I used a mix of cheddar, mozzarella and montery jack) and jalapeno,
add the pinch of salt, continue to blend till smooth
chill for about 2 hours or until mixture is cold enough to be handled and formed into a ball
This can then be rolled into any number of optional toppings, like nuts, or dill or more peppers etc. I left mine just the way it was, because...well I completely spaced out and forgot to add the red pepper flakes. I know, totally batty of me right?
