Fiesta Cheese Ball

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 (1 ounce) envelope taco seasoning, divided
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon green Tabasco sauce
1 tablespoon seeded and diced jalapeno pepper
1 tablespoon diced red onion
1 cup seeded and diced red bell pepper
8 ounces shredded Colby-jack cheese

Preheat over to 300 degrees F.

Place pecans on a small baking sheet and toast in oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with 2 tablespoons taco seasoning; set aside.

In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, remaining taco seasoning and Tabasco sauce until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add jalapeno, onion, bell pepper and Colby-Jack cheese. Stir to combine. Using a rubber spatula, shape cheese into a large ball.

Place a large sheet of plastic wrap on counter top, sprinkle reserved seasoned nuts over plastic. Roll cheese ball in nuts, coating entire outside of ball.

Bring sides of plastic wrap up around ball to seal. Wrap in additional layer of plastic wrap to seal. Place cheese ball on a plate and refrigerate several hours until firm.

Serve with crackers.

Here's one that everyone requests.
16 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp.minced bell pepper
2 tsp Worcestershire
1 tsp lemon juice
dash cayenne

Beat cheeses on medium until well blended. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Refrigerate several hours.

Options:
Form into balls and roll in chopped nuts, parsley, paprika or whatever you like. You can make small balls and roll in different things for a nice presentation.
Wreath: Place a drinking glass on serving plate. Spoon mixture around glass to form a wreath. Remove glass. Decorate wreath with ribbons or holly cut from bell pepper.
Igloo: Put cheese mixture into a bowl lined with plastic wrap to set up. When firm, remove plastic and cover with cream cheese mixed with a little garlic powder. Form blocks using a toothpick. Cut some small blocks of cream cheese to form a doorway. A sprig of rosemary next to the door finishes it nicely. This is great with the penguins for the holidays.
