Top Review by VermeerHouse

I've made this several times. If I follow the recipe it has a tangy flavor. Nothing close to pimento cheese. When I want to tweak the recipe some I will use less chili sauce and add chopped onion and garlic powder. I love the roasted pecans. It gives it a roasted flavor and a nice crunch. This is also good heated and served with corn chips. I would love to hear from someone who remembers eating this at the Inn so see if this is the true taste.
