This is an adopted recipe that I have not yet had the chance to try. I'm not much on cans of sauce (like the Mexican green sauce in the ingredients list) so I'd probably either make my own or experiment with using green salsa instead. I was certainly drawn to the idea of a cilantro dip since I love the stuff so much!
I'm asked to bring this to every family function. This is my great aunt's recipe and when she could no longer make it, I took over. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
You can use low-fat or fat-free cream cheese for this, but it will not get hard and form a ball. If you make it with low-fat ingredients, place the mixture in a bowl or decorative crock and top with crushed pecans. Cook time does not include chill time.
This recipe is a holiday MUST! My mom has been making this for several years now, and it is TO DIE FOR! It's from Sept. 2000 Southern Living. The recipe makes 4 logs, so you almost have to serve 2 at a time...THEY ARE THAT GOOD! Then you can have 2 in the freezer for unexpected guests! Enjoy!
A true Southern delicacy! I didn't know I even liked Pimento Cheese! This stuff is addictive... so addictive I am having a lock installed on my refrigerator (not to keep me out - but in case the neighbors find out!). I have picked at Pimento Cheese spreads at parties and potlucks but never have the desire to make my own... and then I was asked if I would make a batch for a friend...This is a cross between her mom's recipe and my creativity. Great on Celery Sticks, Crackers, Bread... even straight out of the bowl! Even picky four year olds liked it!
We love feta cheese and fresh herbs and this fits the bill. The fresh herbs compliment the cheeses to perfection. This dish always is a big hit at parties and makes a beautiful presentation. Quick to put together and great as a make ahead.
I had this at a New Year's party and it was so good I had to get the recipe to share here. Can easily be divided into smaller amounts, frozen and re-heated in the oven or microwave. Fresh chopped onion can be substituted for the frozen and it is also good with chopped artichoke hearts added. Serve with crackers or melba toast.
I'm not sure if it taste like chocolate chip cookie dough exactly because of the cream cheese, but it is very good. You can serve this dip with graham crackers, vanilla wafer cookies or pretzels. I love it for when I need a sweet dessert but don't have the time to bake cookies. Cook time is cooling time for the butter mixture.
I served this recipe at a holiday party. It was the first appetizer to disappear, and was one of the easiest to prepare. With all that pork bacon, cheese, and a bread bowl - where else to put this recipe but the Midwestern U.S. states.
