Macaroni-and-Pimiento Cheese Bites

Macaroni-and-Pimiento Cheese Bites Recipe
Southern cooks have a secret– pimiento cheese is just as delicious as an appetizer as it is on a sandwich or cracker. By giving the pimiento cheese bites a quick fry, they gain a crisp crust that pairs perfectly with the slightly melted cheese on the inside of the popper.

Two-Cheese Veggie Nachos
Recipe

We love the double-cheese contrast here: Shredded cheese melts into a bubbly blanket over the tortillas, while crumbly queso fresco covers the veggies with a salty kick. It’s an impressive dish for coffee table dining–it’s fun to keep it all on the baking pan and serve as a shared platter.
