1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment. In a large bowl, mix together cheeses, jalapeños, and garlic.

3. Set up dredging station: In a shallow bowl, add flour and season with salt and pepper. In another shallow bowl, add eggs. In a third shallow bowl, add bread crumbs, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne. Mix to combine.

4. Roll frozen cheese balls into flour, then eggs, and then bread crumbs, repeating until all are well coated.

6. Serve bites with ranch.
