Mommaís Cheese Ball

2   8oz. packages Cream Cheese
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained well
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
1 Tablespoon seasoned salt (Lawry's)
2 Tablespoons finely grated onion
2 cups chopped pecans (fine)
 
Combine all, except 1-cup pecans (best if done with hands) and form into 2 balls or 1 big one.  Wrap in wax paper and chill in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours.  When cool shape into better ball(s) and roll in rest of nuts.  Chill.  Freezes well.
 
Lisaís Notes: This is a long time family favorite.  I canít tell you how many times I have been asked for this recipe.  To be a little more creative, you can serve it in a fresh pineapple that has been scoped out or fresh peppers that have been cored.  To do this, donít drain the pineapple and put all the nuts in before mixing.
