Living in Oklahoma, pimento cheese is a staple. We also have quite a few pecan trees. This is my favorite recipe. I do add 1 Tbl. worchestershire sauce and I toast the pecans in the oven at 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes (until toasted) Good stuff!

This is terrific! I never liked pimento cheese, either, but LOVE this recipe! Great on crackers as well as sandwiches. The garlic and pecans make this a standout! Thanks for posting.
