  • Yield: 1 cheese ball 1x


This Pineapple Cheese Ball is amazing and it going to be a hit with everyone. Crushed pineapple, cream cheese, green peppers and chopped pecans!


  • 2 pkgs. (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped green onion
  • 1 tsp. seasoning salt (I use Lawry’s)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red pepper (or green, I like red though)
  • 1 small can (8 oz) crushed pineapple, drained
  • Chopped pecans (about 1 cup)


  1. In a large bowl (or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment), mix the cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Add the green onion, seasoning salt, red pepper and pineapple. Mix until well combined.
  3. Form into a ball and roll in chopped pecans. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours.
  4. Serve with favorite crackers or chips.


I like to spread the pecans on a large piece of saran wrap and roll the cheese ball in them. After the cheese ball is evenly covered in the pecans, I wrap it up tightly in that piece of saran wrap and reshape it if needed and place inside a small bowl, about the size of the cheese ball.
