Thanksgiving Cheese ball

This year I decided to turn my boring cheese ball into a festive Thanksgiving appetizer! 

To make this easy cheese ball I used the following ingredients:

2 packages of cream cheese
1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch powder dressing/seasoning
1 can of Tyson's fully cooked chicken breast
sliced almonds

The crowd pleasing turkey was made by simply adding slices of a red bell pepper, assorted crackers and nuts!
Mix cream cheese, Ranch dressing/seasoning mix, and can of chicken(well drained). Then shape the mixture into a ball. 
Next Roll ball in sliced almonds until the outside of the ball is completely covered
Slice a red bell pepper into long strips to create the head and tail feathers for your turkey. The curve where the pepper meets the stem will make a great head/neck for your little gobbler :) 
Bellow is a close up of the slice I used for the head
Use a Variety of crackers, pretzels, and nuts to finish off your feathered friend!
Thank you for checking out my blog :) Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
