1 extra large cheeseball


8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 c. finely grated sharp cheddar cheese

1 c. finely grated pepperjack cheese

1 tsp. dried cilantro

pinch chili powder

pinch salt

1/2 - 1 c. chopped pecan pieces


----> Place all ingredients, except pecan pieces, together in a bowl. Stir until all the cheeses and spices are well combined. Place a sheet of plastic wrap on the counter. Spoon cheese mixture into the center of the plastic wrap. Fold plastic wrap up until completely covering the cheese mixture; form into a ball shape. Chill for an hour. Remove plastic wrap and gently press pecan pieces into the top and sides of the ball. Serve immediately or return to the fridge until ready to use.
