Wild BC Salmon Cheese Ball


This is a fun spin on a fancy wild salmon, cheese ball! With a Doritos crust and a topper from a green or red pepper, this ball is perfectly autumn-themed and taking on the look of a pumpkin!



  • 1 can of wild salmon, drained and flaked

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

  • 2 cups cheddar cheese

  • 3 tablespoons minced onion

  • 3 tablespoons salsa

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 2 cups nacho cheese chips, crumbled

  • Top of 1 bell pepper for stem garnish


  1. With a mixer, combine your can of wild salmon, cream cheese, cheddar, onion, salsa and cumin in a bowl. Mix until creamy.

  2. Scoop mixture onto plastic wrap and use wrap to form a ball and chill for at least 2 hours. Optionally, wrap ball in a few rubber bands to form the ridges of a pumpkin.

  3. When ready to serve, roll ball into the crushed nacho chips and place bell pepper stem on top. Serve with chips, vegetables or pretzels!

    Serve and enjoy!
