hello? nutritional information please! Did I miss it or should we just be content to close our eyes and consume fat and salt in mystery quantities? How about offering lower fat options, substitutions or alternative ingredients? just asking. btw, this comment applies to all the recipes offered on this site. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It is delicious....my favorite pimiento cheese recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was very easy and so delicious. For those of you that are saying it is too salty for you. It might be the brand of cheese that you are using, the cheese and the jarred pimento do have salt in them. Maybe try rinsing the jarred pimentos in a mesh strainer and let drain well. I do think that the 1/2 teaspoon of the "house seasoning" does make a whole lot of difference in the recipe. But if 1/2 teaspoon seems like a lot, try using 1/4 teaspoon instead. Never the less, this recipe is keeper. Please try it, I know those of you who love pimento cheese will love this recipe... item not reviewed by moderator and published

It was too salty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just made this in my Ninja, made small changes to ingredients based on what I had in my kitchen. I used no onion powder, salt, and jalepeno. Had to use neufechal cheese instead of reg cream cheese and 2 cups of blended shredded cheese-which is a combo of jack, cheddar, queso and asadero (costco bag), tiny drop of thai garlic/chili paste and added a splash of lemon juice. Wonderful! Will send on sandwiches for my kids! My NC husband loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published

To calculate a recipe in google I typed in: recipe builder calories and it will take you to calorie count. Now just enter in all ingredients, you can change to low cal, low fat etc.. it will give you the calories all you have to do is tell it how to divide the recipe for 1, 5, 10? With this you can calculate any recipe you make. I love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
