"I just threw this together one day for a party where I knew there wouldn't be any sandwiches for us non meat eaters. Definitely not for the Vegan. This is a quick and yummy alternative to store bought pimento cheese spread."

Southerners use real Mayo, like Duke's or Hellman's. this calls for more pimiento than needed, use half as much. Adding a little cayenne is great, too.

Yesterday I purchased a quart of Pimento Cheese from the local Fresh Market for a party. It cost me $15.00! It was good but I thought I can do better for less! Besides I still needed more pimento chesse for the party. So, I choose to use pre-grated cheese, one (8oz) Sharp Cheddar and one (8oz) mixed Cheddar and Monterey Jack (it was on sale). For some reason pimentos come in 2 oz ($.99), 4 oz ($1.29) and 7 oz ($1.59) jars. I decided to use the 7 oz. since it was the best value. I chopped the pimentos fine, used less salad dressing than called for and spiced it up with some hot sauce and a generous dash of Worcestershire Sauce. I did a side by side comparison and I think my homemade is better than the expensive store bought stuff. I won’t be paying someone else to make mine any more! Give it a try this recipe is pretty good.

I've tried lots of recipes, but this one is closest to the best! I replaced one cup of the Colby cheese with one cup of Monterrey Jack w/ jalapenos in it. It gave it a great little spicy kick. Great with baguette slices!
