Jalapeño Spinach Balls

  •  1 (6 oz) Box Stuffing Mix
  • 1 (16 oz) Package Frozen Chopped Spinach
  • 1 c. Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 c. Grated Swiss Cheese
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 stick of Butter, melted (8 Tbsp.)
  • ½ tsp. Chicken Seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. Onion, Finely Chopped
  • 1 (4 oz.) Can of Diced Jalapeños

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Allow the spinach to thaw for about one hour. Squeeze out excess liquid from the spinach and drain in a colander. You want the spinach to be dry or else the balls will fall apart. Add the dry stuffing mix, Parmesan cheese, Swiss cheese, eggs, melted butter, chicken seasoning, onion and jalapeño.  Mix together well so all the dry stuffing mix pieces are blended in. Allow to set for about 10 minutes in the refrigerator.
