They aren’t your traditional Thanksgiving appetizer, but they’re a great way to add a little More Spice to your holiday spread. Kait’s Kitchen calls these Pimento Cheese Jalapeño Poppers a slight twist on the traditional recipe, adding diced pimentos and a spicy seasoning to the cream cheese and the smokiness of bacon.
