For crackers, celery sticks, apple slices, or toasted sandwiches! Sixty (60) servings on crackers is a complete guess; I plan to make sandwiches from mine, but don't know how many it will make!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toast pecans in a medium-hot iron skillet ~ constantly stirring to prevent burning! Set aside to cool.
  2. Drain pimentos in a wire strainer, covered with a folded paper towel, for about 1/2 hour.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Use a food processor, if you have one!
  4. Refrigerate cheese spread for a few hours, to allow flavors to meld.
  5. Makes approximately 4 cups. Serve with crackers, celery sticks, sliced apples, or make toasted sandwiches!
  6. Enjoy!

Yummy! I like the Swiss cheese and cheddar combo with the Swiss cheese making a more pronounced flavor presence along with the nuttiness of the pecans. The cream cheese adds a nice creamy texture to this spread. Served this yummy snack with celery sticks, but I plan to also serve it with some whole grain crackers. Made for the For Your Consideration tag game.
