One Pan Nan: Kickin’ Pimento Cheese

nan-kelley-kickin-pimento-cheese

Every week on Top 20 Country Countdown our host, Nan Kelley, counts down your favorite videos — but when she’s away from the studio, she’s likely to be found in her kitchen, creating healthy, delicious meals. Nan likes to keep it simple, cooking entire meals using only one pan. Her husband, Charlie, lovingly gave her the nickname “One Pan Nan,” and now that’s also the name of her new cookbook [get it HERE!]. We asked Nan to share some of her recipes with us, and this week, it’s Kickin’ Pimento Cheese.

You may know Krystal Keith as the singer of the sweet father/daughter wedding dance song, “Daddy Dance With Me,” which she wrote for her own wedding as a surprise for dad Toby Keith. Or maybe you know her from her official debut single, “Get Your Redneck On.” [Get it here!] But did you know she’s also super talented in the kitchen? Krystal’s been creating delicious meals from family recipes for years and featuring them in her blog, The Barnyard Bistro. Every week she shares her favorites exclusively with Great American Country.

“I plan on keeping summer alive as long as I can. Grilling our dinner is one thing that keeps us outside and in the summer spirit. We love inviting our friends over and enjoying dinner on the patio on these warm summer nights. This recipe for Chipotle Lime Shrimp Skewers is the perfect outdoor meal to share with friends. Serve them over a bed of rice or sautéed peppers and onions, with a few hot tortillas and a bucket of Pacificos, and you’re off to a great night.”
