Easy Homemade Pimento Cheese

pimento 2







My Grandmother used to make pimento cheese and it was delish! She used Velveeta which I love but try not to use too much these days. So I changed things up and made a fresh tasting pimento cheese using real cheese.

You’ll need :

4 cups shredded cheese – I use mild cheddar and colby-jack
1/2 cup drained diced pimentos
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 cup good mayonnaise

Mix well, taste and correct seasonings. I never add salt because cheese is usually so salty and may has salt too. Serve with crackers or as a sandwich spread. Keep refrigerated.

    Sounds very much like my recipe, except I add paprika and I make a sauce with a little vinegar, sugar and a tiny bit of prepared mustard.

      That sounds delicious, Shirley!
