      Serves 6

      1 cup chopped pecans
      1 cup dried bread crumbs
      1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
      1 cup eggs, beaten
      1 onion, chopped
      2 cups vegetable oil for frying

      1 cup tomato juice
      1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
      1 teaspoon ground cumin
      1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)

      In a large bowl, mix together pecans, bread crumbs, cheese, eggs, and onion. Shape into golf ball size balls.

      Heat oil in an electric deep fryer or heavy saucepan to 365 degrees F ( 170 degrees C). Add cheese balls to hot oil, and fry until brown. Fry in batches to maintain oil temperature. Transfer to an 8 inch square baking pan.

      In a medium bowl, mix together tomato juice, tomato soup, and cumin. Cover cheese balls with sauce. Sprinkle additional cheese on top, if desired.

      Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes.
