1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt blend
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a large bowl, beat the cheeses, mustard, paprika, seasoned salt, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne or pepper sauce until well blended and smooth. Refrigerate until firm enough to handle. Shape heaping tablespoonfuls of the cheese mixture into 2-inch balls.
Roll balls in chopped pecans and sesame seeds until thoroughly coated. Serve with crackers.
