How to add texture to pimento cheese dip?

I love pimento cheese dip and crackers but I sometimes find it too smooth and boring. Looking for creative ways to add texture and taste. I've tried chopped and toasted pecans with some success. Any other ideas?
Thanks!

I like to add chopped scallions and a little chopped red bell pepper. Not too finely.

If you like a little spice, de-seed a jalapeño or 2 and dice it up. Or, crisp some bacon and dice that.

Hang on until Eugenia Bone's cookbook, The Kitchen Ecosystem, comes out next year. She's got a to-die-for recipe for making your own pimento cheese!

I second the scallions and peppers and you could also add chopped celery, radish, cilantro stalks, carrots, really any veggie diced really well would add texture and flavor!
