Move over sausage balls, we have a new favorite in town, and it’s Spicy Chicken Cheeseballs!
Who else believes October is passing by far too quickly? Yea, I know that it’s only been a week. I feel like it was just July! I never believed my parents growing up, yet it’s true; the older I get the faster time goes. I believe the more kids you have, the faster life quickly passes. After Kelsie was born, it seemed that Kayla was in middle school, in no time at all. It was crazy. Kayla is now a senior, and Kelsie is in middle school. Time gone.
Anyway, y’all are here for these awesome Spicy Chicken Cheeseballs that are seriously going to put sausage balls to shame! Every year when the weather cools down, and even before, I am in the mood to have munchie holiday foods; like sausage balls, snack mixes, cookies, candies, you get the idea. I want them all! As I was thinking of grabbing the stuff to make sausage balls, I ran across a different type of recipe. Table for Two Blog has a tasty idea with chicken!
When I tasted the first one out of the oven, after burning the roof of my mouth, I knew these Spicy Chicken Cheeseballs were something special. I was right! They have been requested for dinner about 5 different times. They are really that good! Who says you can’t have cheeseballs for dinner? Who am I to judge? We totally ate these twice for dinner in about two weeks time.
These guys are cheesy, spicy, but not too spicy, and moist. A lot of times sausage balls turn out dry and crumbly. Oh, don’t act like I’m the only one! You’ve surely had a bad run with sausage balls at least once. If you haven’t, cheers to you! I’ve made a couple of bad batches since I am forever losing that perfect sausage ball recipe. Let’s get to this recipe so that you can make these perfectly moist every time Spicy Chicken Cheeseballs!
