Do you buy your pimento cheese in plastic bowls from the store? You never will again if you ever try this!!
TIP: A JAP member shared with me that you could add lime juice to plain yogurt and it would taste like sour cream. Well I did this when I made my second batch, and by golly, it tasted like sour cream to me! So I will be making it without sour cream in the future which will cut back some on the fat and sodium.
