Pimento Cheese Spread

Melissa Snow


It's always fun to visit my sister and her family in South Carolina. Not only is there a lot to see and do, but the food is just the best. One of my new favorite snacks is pimento cheese. This is my brother-in-law's recipe. It is good with crackers or vegetables. If you are following the Keto diet, you can serve it with pork rinds.
