Hey ya'll! Thanks for all the great reviews--I am so flattered! Thanks, also, for not making the recipe completely different than written and then stating how you don't like it. I don't understand that. Thanks again. Don't forget to use EXTRA-SHARP cheddar cheese! **UPDATE 6/24/2011** Thanks to Yakaty for suggesting the addition of worchestershire and mustard. It makes this even better IMO! Thanks again to all for the reviews! PS If it ain't Duke's, it ain't mayo! ;)

This was without a doubt the best pimento cheese I've ever had! I omitted the jalapenos, and bumped up the cayenne a bit since I like my pimento cheese with a bit of a bite to it. Other than that, this recipe is flawless. Thank you so much for sharing!

This is exactly the way I've always made Pimento Cheese (minus the jalepeno). I took some to work once and 4 people told me it was the best they've ever had. Yum!
