Baked Pimento Cheese Dip

I am very sorry that I haven’t posted in such a long time!  I have been off traveling, having fun, and haven’t been able to commit to NewsforChews as much as I would have liked.  But, I am now back and dedicated to posting!  While I was away, there were a few bachelorettes, weddings, dinner parties, and of course birthdays.  One of my favorite recipes (and crowd’s favorite) that I made for a friend’s birthday was a baked pimento cheese dip.  If you aren’t familiar with pimento, it is a type of sweet chili pepper.  This dip is very common in the south and I was first introduced to it when I was in South Carolina.  It has easily become my favorite dip to eat, and also bake.  Follow Southern Living‘s recipe below for a a simple seven ingredient dump, stir, bake, and enjoy recipe!
