Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Did not like this recipe at all, I like all of the ingredients so I thought I would. No flavor!

Hi CJ! We're sorry it didn't come out the way you hoped. If you decide to try again, we'd suggest maybe adding a bit more cilantro, or seasoning it to your taste. Hopefully that will give it more of the delicious flavors you were hoping for. :)

These Pimiento Cheese Deviled Eggs will be a hit with your family this Easter.
