I guarantee this will be the best pimento cheese you have ever tasted. You should cover it and refrigerate for a few hours to let it set up, but I usually can't wait that long to eat it!

It's reasonably good, but why call it Pimento (pimiento?) Cheese when it doesn't contain any pimiento at all? Read More

The recipe itself is good but it has two major problems. It is NOT pimento cheese or at least nothing that I've ever recognized as pimento cheese. That however is not why I docked the star. I didn't drain my Rotel tomatoes (because the recipe didn't say anything about draining) and the end result is more of a dip than a cheese spread. You should put "drained" after the tomatoes in the ingredient list. I made the recipe as is mixing in a food processor. We will enjoy this dip that is not pimento cheese. I will probably make it again and will be sure to drain the tomatoes. Read More

The fact many questioned this recipe does not actually call for pimento is moot it tastes just like traditional pimento cheese only pumped up a bit (there are peppers in the Rotel and it is a pepper after all!). It is DELICIOUS! I highly recommend making it 1-2 days ahead of time. I did not grate the onion but chopped it very fine. Thank you! I will definitely make this again!! Read More

The first batch I made with the white onion and thought it was way too strong. The second batch I added a bunch of green onions chopped. This recipe goes together in about 5 minutes and it is absolutely delicious. I took it to a work function and it received many raves and requests for the recipe. Read More

This was an excellent and tasty recipe. I noticed that other reviews asked why there was no pimento in this recipe, and all you had to do was read what was in the recipe to figure that out. It was very good anyway. Read More

I wouldn't call this Pimento Cheese but it sure is good!! I used fat-free and low-fat ingredients when I made it. Made it initially to stuff into mini peppers for Super Bowl but also stuffed celery with it. Then decided to spread some on flour tortillas fill them with veggies(peppers cukes grape tomatoes sprouts olives etc) roll them up and slice them for another appetizer. They were a huge hit! Will definitely make again! Read More
