RECIPE: Chili Cheese Log with Firekracker

Our Smoky Cheeseball was so delectable we knew we had to revisit the recipe. How can we improve upon such perfection?

After snacking on some delicious, Midwestern-spicy Firekracker pecans, it hit us like a ton of cheese bricks...Chili Cheese Log! Not just a chili cheese log, but a chili cheese log coated in slightly spicy, full of chili flavor, Firekracker. Join the culinary revolution that is the chili cheese log and blow your friends and family away. It's perfect for the hors d'oeuvres table at family gatherings like Halloween parties and Thanksgiving.

If consumed on Game Day, the Chili Cheese Log with Firekracker will make your favorite team win. Think we're being overly dramatic? Think again.
