The secret is cream cheese. Use Miracle Whip in place of mayo. Blend cream cheese, pimentos,pecans first. Add cheddar, then miracle whip as needed. Use miracle whip to freshen up.

This is our absolute fav pimento cheese. We have been making it this way for a few years. Some tips. Shred your own cheese. Its SO MUCH BETTER. Its a lot of work to shred a pound of cheese, b...

This was not our favorite. We love pimiento cheese, and my husband loves pecans, but this recipe just didn't work for us. A waste of good pecans. Sorry.

yummy! just don't store toooo long! anything changes taste in 3 days!

I felt the crackers we better than the spread. Should call for less. Cheese.
