Southern Style Jalapeño Pimento Cheese
Pimento cheese is a southern favorite. I love this cheese spread good and spicy! Feel free to adjust the heat by using more or less jalapeños. This classic southern spread is great on vegetables, crackers or spread on sweet Hawaiian rolls. My personal favorite is using it to top a hamburger.
I have always bought my pimento cheese premade at the grocery store. Until one day, a guy’s wife sent him to work with some homemade. I tried it and begged him for the rest of the day to call her to get the recipe.
- 1 lb (4 cups) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 4 oz jar pimentos, drained
- 1 jalapeño, finely chopped and seeded
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients and refrigerate
Mixing these ingredients with a spoon is kinda difficult, so I used my hands. You could use a stand mixer with the spiral dough hook.
