1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened 1 (8 oz.) block sharp cheddar, shredded 2 T. milk (optional, for softer spread) 2 or 3 minced garlic cloves 1 package chili seasoning 1 C.
chopped English walnuts
In food processor or with mixer, blend softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar, milk and garlic until creamy smooth. Chill for at least 1/2 hour so cheese mixture will be easier to handle. Tear off 2 pieces of wax paper, each about a foot long. Sprinkle the package of chili mix seasoning on one and the chopped nuts on the other.
Form the cheese into ball shape with your hands, then roll in chili seasoning, covering completely. Then roll in nuts. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until about an hour before serving. Serve with your favorite snack crackers.
