1 - 8oz. Philadelphia cream cheese (softened)
1 - 8oz. bag shredded sharp cheddar cheese (room temperature)
1/2 TBSP horseradish
1/8 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. Tabasco sauce
4oz. dried beef (chopped)
In a bowl add cream cheese, horseradish, garlic salt and Tabasco sauce--stir to mix. Add the shredded cheddar cheese--stir until mixed. Chill the mixture for 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator, form the mixture into a ball. Place a piece of wax paper on your counter and spread the chopped dried beef over the wax paper. Roll the cheese ball all over the dried beef so that the outside of the cheese ball is covered with dried beef. Place on a serving dish and serve with good quality crackers.
