I never really thought I would be saying this, but this is a prize-winning recipe. Seriously! Lorberau Farms of Alice, Texas is a local goat cheese farm. They recently ran a “Flavor Your Own” contest. And I won!

The contest was to take their plain chevre cheese and add your own flavoring to it. I came up with the recipe below. A friend of mine named it Fiesta Cheese Ball because she said it was like a party in your mouth. Perhaps it’s a San Antonio thing since we have a 10 day party every Spring called Fiesta!
