Nacho Cheese Bites

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here and I’ve been excited for weeks. Not because I really care about the game. But because I love all the snacks!

I haven’t quite made up my mind about what we’ll be eating. Today I was thinking of nachos and cheese and thought it would be fun to create an appetizer with a nacho cheese filling. So I came up with these nacho cheese bites.
Nacho Cheese Bites
They are basically pizza ball bites filled with a mild spicy cheese. When baked, the cheese melts so that you are met with oozing cheese when you bite into the dough ball.

Some of the dough balls had a little bit too much cheese so when they baked, it oozed out. These were tasty, though I would make an additional side of nacho cheese sauce for dipping for some additional cheesy goodness.
