1 block vegan nacho cheese, room temperature

1 container vegan cream cheese, room temperature

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1⁄2 teaspoon hot sauce

1⁄4 teaspoon salt

Grate vegan cheese into a large bowl, or process in a food processor until finely minced. Using a large fork, mash the vegan cheese together with the cream cheese, garlic powder, hot sauce, and salt until well mixed. (You may need to use your hands for this.)
Chill until firm, at least 1 hour, then shape into ball or log shape, pressing firmly. Sprinkle with paprika and carefully roll in nuts. Serve with crackers.
