For some reason, maybe because I love it, I've been on the hunt for great pimento cheese recipes. Despite having three really fabulous recipes to date....I found another one to add. This was really creamy, and despite the name 'jalapeno' in the ingredient list, it didn't have too much of a kick (granted, I live in Texas-home of spices). Here is another super simple one to add....I can't explain the passion, but I can attest to the yumminess of this recipe.
