Thanks for this recipe. I love pimentos and it is great to have something other than pimento cheese sandwiches.

Now this sounds just like something I would love to try. I actually love the taste of pimento and often make my own pimento cheese. This will surely have a wonderful taste. I think I am going to leave out the garlic to make the crab taste more prominant.
