Pimento Cheese

29 Jan

Pimento cheese, a true southern favorite. I have been craving it a lot lately, and experimenting in finding a perfect recipe since it’s next to impossible to find out here in New Mexico. I finally got my recipe down. I think. 

Taste for yourself!

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar 

3oz cream cheese. The whipped kind blends easier.

1/2 cup mayo

1/4 tsp minced onion 

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

(I am making these measurements up. I pour into the palm of my hand and eyeball it. I judge how much cayenne by shaking the jar over whatever I am cooking until it is a good tint of red. I’m real scientific.)

1 4oz jar of minced pimento, drained

A palm full of pickled jalapeno slices

A few shakes of tabasco and worcestershire 

Salt and pepper

All in the food processor, blend it up. Serve on a ham sandwich with pickle slices, as a pinwheel with tortilla, on a burger, on crackers, in deviled eggs, on biscuits with bacon, or as a grilled cheese sandwich.

Bam. That’s what I did with my day.

Ate cheese.
