- 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese shredded
- 8 ounces mild cheddar cheese shredded
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1/4 cup diced pimentos
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise or Greek yogurt (optional)
1. Cream together cheddar cheese with the softened cream cheese until well combined.
2. Stir in the pimentos and salt and pepper.
If you prefer your pimento cheese to be a bit thinner for spreading, add in the optional mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, or liquid from the diced pimentos to preference.
Pro Tip: Grate your own cheese instead of buying pre-shredded for a greater flavor and consistency.
