Let cream cheese soften and grate the Old English cheese. Beat together with an electric beater, adding garlic salt and Tabasco. Mix thoroughly. Add chopped pecans and beat. Lay out wax paper and sprinkle with chili powder and paprika. Shape cheese mixture into two rolls. Roll in paprika and chili powder mixture and store (in fridge) until ready to use. These rolls can also be frozen.
