"it's not Christmas in our house without this. my mother (portales, new mexico) made this for years with slight variation. she always used a block of american cheese (no longer available ?) instead of velveeta. we made it into logs about the size of a stick of butter and coated each in chili powder. perfect size to include on a snack plate or as a gift."

"I made this recipe to take to Easter dinner at my brothers, it was excellent and everyone loved it. Instead of using pecans I used sliced almonds, definately be making this again for more parties & cookouts. Carolyn PA"
