2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened (I use PHILADELPHIA BRAND)
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 tablespoon chopped pimento
1 tablespoon chopped green pepper
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Dash of ground red pepper
Dash of salt
Chopped pecans if desired
Combine cream cheese and cheddar cheese, mixing at medium speed on electric mixer until well blended. Add all remaining ingredients except pecans; mix well. Place in clear wrap and shape into a ball. Place in refrigerator and chill for several hours. Take out of refrigerator and unwrap; shape into ball and roll in pecans if desired. Place on platter with assorted crackers. Makes 2 cups.
*My family and friends like this cheese ball rolled in pecans.
