Author Lindsay Viker


  • 16 oz sharp cheddar cheese (we love the Cracker Barrel brand)
  • 10 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup chili powder


  • Grate cheese in a food processor and set aside. (If you don't have a food processor, you can grate with a normal box grater. It will just take a bit longer.)
  • Chop pecans and garlic with the steel blade in the food processor.
  • Add softened cream cheese and pulse a couple of times.
  • Add grated cheese and blend all together until smooth.
  • Pour chili powder on a sheet of parchment paper (Wax paper will work also.)
  • Form cheese into 2 logs and roll in the chili powder.
  • Chill at least 24 hours. These rolls can also be frozen and used at a later date.
  • Serve with crackers. A thick cracker, like Triscuits, works well here.


These Chili Cheese Rolls are great on their own or make a great addition to any charcuterie board!
