    Looks interesting... would substituting chopped black olives for the pimentos cause too much of a change in macros? I really do not like pimentos....

    I tried this with the jalapeno peppers since I could not find the pimentos. Was nice and spicy! Spread it on those shredded cheese crisps you can make or buy...

    Pimientos are available packed in water in the pickle/condiment section of your store.

    Is it me? I don't see pimentos in the ingredient list. Are the jalepenos in addition to some pimentos, or used as a substitute? Thanks~ (I want to try the pimento-meatball recipe..looks yummy!)

    I agree with Liz!

    Instructions state to let cool. Are we to cook everything together? Where are the pimientos? Very poor instructions.

    Would be great if dietdoctor would give more nutrional information. Only %, that doesn't tell me how much g/portion of protein or fat in the recipe. A breakdown like ruled.me use would be great

    Hi JSF!

    Sorry but we don't want to promote to much "counting" that's why we only have the carbs in gram.

    But If you feel that this is important to you then use the formula below to calculate, a bit complicated though. ;-)

    (%PROTEIN / %CARB) * gram_CARB = gram_PROTEIN
    (%FAT / %CARB) * 4/9 * gram_CARB = gram_FAT

    You find the nutritional info by holding your mouse pointer at "Nutrition" at the end of the recipe.
