Pecan Spread

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Toni in Colorado

I do not remember where I got the recipe for the Snowcap Spread. Since this is Pecan Month, here is a spread for crackers from the Colorado Cachet cookbook. Though the recipe indicates putting the pecan pieces on top, I just mix them into the spread. I have also altered this to include 1/3 cup diced green olives 8 ounces deviled ham, and 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper. (This is really mixing another recipe (Snowcap Spread with the Pecan Spread)

Toni, this spread is simply AMAZING!!!! I luved it so much, I really cant wait to make it again soon! :)
The flavours are so complex and everything works so well together! I particularly enjoyed the play of the sweetish roasted pecans with the onion (I used a green onion). Mmmm!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this easy to make yet impressive recipe with us!
