Ingredients: – 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.
