READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Bobbie

Just found this recipe in my new Southern Living Magazine. It was sent in my Jim Early from Winston-Salem, NC. He says this recipe can easily be cut in half.

I made this last night, and it just wasn't what I'd hoped. I'd have preferred a creamier texture and maybe use 2 blocks milk cheese and only 1 block sharp cheese. Pimientos need to be decreased (for me), one 7 ounce jar is plenty. Will not make this again.
