Pimento Cheese Spread

This pimento cheese is super simple and delicious as a sandwich (a classic of the Master's Tournament), as a dip with chips, or slathered on a crisp crunchy rib of celery.  In my opinion, the flavor is the best if you let it come to room temperature before serving, as cold cheese has very little flavor.

Ingredients:
3 oz        cream cheese, softened
1 cup      grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup      grated pepper jack cheese
½ cup     mayonnaise
1 tsp       grated sweet onion
3 – 4 Tbsp roasted red peppers, chopped fine
To taste  black pepper
to taste   garlic powder
to taste   salt
  • Mix and let sit overnight in refrigerator.
  • Let it sit out and warm up for a while before serving. 





Step-by-step:
Simply mix all ingredients and let sit a while for flavors to develop. 
3 oz        cream cheese, softened

1 cup      grated extra sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup      grated pepper jack cheese

½ cup     mayonnaise
1 tsp       grated sweet onion

3 – 4 Tbsp roasted red peppers, chopped fine
to taste   salt
To taste  black pepper
to taste   garlic powder
 Stir, cover, and refrigerate for a while.  It's even better overnight.
YUM!!!!
