Chili Cheese Ball Spread

We have made this for 30 years and its always a hit. We use 8 ounces cream cheese plus minced garlic, bell pepper and pecans!
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
