Tupelo Honey's Pimiento Cheese Dip
Tupelo Honey Cafe

Often called the pâté of the south, pimento cheese has as many variations as there are home cooks in the region.  Many recipes are very specific when it comes to ingredients:  one may require Duke's mayonnaise; another may demand only oven-roasted red bell peppers.  Some Southern chefs may spike their pimento cheese with a touch of bourbon.  Asheville, NC-based Tupelo Honey Cafe's pimento cheese is different because they serve it warm with their homemade tortilla chips, a delicious take on the classic spread.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
