Pastrami Cheese Ball

This is a nice red and green for Christmas parties. It goes together quickly and can be eaten immediately but it’s nice if the flavors have at least a few hours in the fridge to meld. You can roll it in nuts or parsley if you want, or add parsley to it

1 package dried pastrami, diced
2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
(low fat is fine, non-fat is ok but not real good)
1 small diced onion (about 3 Tbs.)
1 finely diced green pepper or a mixture of green with jalapeno or other hot pepper if desired (or dash of hot sauce)
2-4 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce

Dice one package pastrami add to bowl with cream cheese. Finely chop onion and peppers. (I prefer habanaro peppers for a slightly “hotter” taste. Generally the smaller the pepper the hotter the taste.) Add several tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Stir and taste. Best with butter crackers.
