I’ve partnered with Price*s® to bring you this delicious meal and snack idea, but all opinions are my own!
I live in Texas, and in the south many people have strong memories associated with pimiento cheese – it was often a special occasion dish, and a childhood favorite!
But I have a confession…
I grew up on the Eastern Seaboard, and hadn’t experienced the culinary delight that is pimiento cheese until I moved to the south after getting married. But now that I’ve grown accustomed to it, I feel nostalgic about its slightly spicy and creamy taste too! So it was a no-brainer to use Pimiento cheese in another childhood favorite – the classic 50’s broccoli rice casserole!
1 stick of butter
1 large onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
16 – 20 ounces frozen broccoli florets
1/3 cup milk
1 can Great Value Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1 can Great Value Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 container of Price*s® Southern Style Pimiento Cheese
2 cups cooked long grain white rice
- Heat 1 butter stick in a large skillet over medium heat. Add your onion and cook until slightly tender.
- Stir the broccoli florets in the skillet and cook until they are warmed through. Stir in Price*s® Southern Style Pimiento Cheese as well as the milk, soups, and rice.
- Cook and stir until the cheese is melted, and all ingredients are warmed and combined. Pour the broccoli mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish.
- Bake the mixture at 350°F. for 30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling around all the edges!

Want another quicker, but still yummy way to use your Price*s Southern Style pimiento cheese?
Make this crowd pleaser – a Texas Pimiento Cheese Pine Cone! It’s super easy to whip together, and it’s the perfect dish to bring to a get together. I’m bringing one to a New Years Eve get together this year – and I know it will get gobbled up fast!
The Texas Pimiento Cheese Pine Cone:
First choose which Price*s Southern Style pimiento cheese you’d like to use, original or Spicy Jalapeño! Next, form your cheese into a pine cone shape (tear drop) and stick in the freezer for a few minutes to let it get a bit firmer. Next use almonds, starting from the bottom to the top to take the shape of the pine cone scales.
Now all that’s left is to use a few sprigs of rosemary on the top as it greenery! Easy peasy – and a delicious addition to a pot luck with friends, or to share with family! I recommend serving it with a very mild water cracker to best showcase the Pimiento Cheese’s flavor and kick!
