This is a great low carb snack. It's not for Keto dieters who want to stay away from dairy, but it is macro-friendly otherwise and it tastes fantastic. Using cucumbers as the vehicle for the cheese, you get the 'chip & dip' satisfaction without the carbs.
Cream the cream cheese, spices, chipotle peppers and
adobo sauce first in a food processor until thoroughly combined.
Move cheese/pepper mixture to a bowl and add shredded cheese (add optional ingredients in this step if you like)
Mix until combined and form into a ball. (Glove up and use your hands to make this step easier)
Put almonds into a zip lock bag and use a hammer, heavy spoon, or rolling pin to crush the almonds. Don't get carried away. This should be a bit chunky.
Transfer ball to a plate and apply crushed almonds around the outside to coat.
Serve with cucumber slices, celery or other scoop-worthy veggie or Keto cracker of choice
