Cajun Caviar. Some call it Cajun Crack. We all have our own way of making it. I’ve worked on this recipe for years.
Cajun Caviar is a pecan, cheese, and green onion mixture that is held together by mayonnaise. It can be formed into a cheese ball or spread on a platter and covered with pepper jelly.
Personally, I like it spread on a platter and served with a spreader. It is easier to serve for a crowd.
This is a great appetizer when you are having a party. Everyone raves about it!
Here is how I make it.
In a large bowl mix together shredded cheese, chopped pecans, green onions, mayonnaise, Cajun seasoning, and hot sauce.
Spread onto a large platter and top with pepper jelly.
Serve with wheat thins or Ritz crackers. Try not to eat the whole thing!!!
2 cups finely shredded cheese (cheddar or Colby jack)
1 cup chopped green onions
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 cup mayonnaise
a few dashes of hot sauce
1 jar Tabasco pepper jelly (hot) (this is the red one)
crackers (wheat thins are my favorite with this)
In a large bowl, mix together the cheese, onions, pecans, mayonnaise, hot sauce, and a little Cajun seasoning.
Spread onto a platter and top with the pepper jelly.
Serve with crackers.
