– 1 lb Colby Jack cheese
– 4 oz cream cheese, softened
– 1 cup pecans
– 1 tablespoon chopped onion
– 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
– 1 clove garlic, minced
– 1 tablespoon chili powder
– To serve: crackers
Grate the Colby Jack on a box grater or with the shredding disk of a food processor.
Tip: make sure you use a block of cheese, and NOT pre-shredded cheese. The roll won’t stick together if you use pre-shredded cheese.
Very finely chop the pecans.
Place the grated cheese, cream cheese, chopped pecans, onion, worcestershire sauce, and garlic in a large bowl. Mix with a spoon or your hands to combine.
Pat the cheese mixture into a 12-inch long log. It will be 2–3 inches in diameter.
Sprinkle the chili powder on a cutting board, and roll the cheese log in the chili powder to coat.
Transfer to a serving board and surround the Cheese Roll with crackers and nuts.
To serve, cut into thin slices and place onto crackers.
