Pimento Cheese Spread:

  • 8 OZ cream cheese, softened
  • 4 T salted butter, softened
  • 2 T chopped pecans (optional)

  1. Make pimento cheese spread: Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until well combined. Spoon into a crock or jar, cover and set aside.
  2. Heat a sauté an over medium heat and add the oil. Brown the beef, breaking it up as you cook, until cooked through, about 8 minutes.

  4. Simmer the beef and cheese mixture for 5 minutes then assemble the tacos and serve with taco toppings of your choice.

  5. Alternatively, you can serve the beef and cheese mix as you would a queso dip with tortilla chips.
