I first had this at a New Year's Eve party about 25-30 years ago, go the recipe, and have been fixing it ever since. It tastes great! Prep time does not include time for the rolls to chill.

This really is a tasty cheese spread. My recipe calls for pecans. for a frame of reference, I use 3T chili powder to roll the cheese log in.
