Pimento Cheese, the southern classic, never tasted so good when paired with buttery RITZ Crackers. This recipe is simple, portable, and it’s a family snacking favorite!
My family loves RITZ Crackers, and we always have a box in the pantry. I love them, because they’re a springboard for tasty snack creations. I like to get creative with RITZ Crackers and make different snack recipes. A family favorite is this Pimento Cheese Spread recipe. RITZ Crackers are a must when serving this snack or party appetizer, because their buttery, slightly salty nature pair beautifully with the pimento cheese. There simply isn’t a better vessel for this cheese spread!
