Sweet Pimento Cheese

Serves:many

Prep:30 Min

Ingredients

  • 2 c sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 c monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 c mayonnaise (i used duke’s light)
  • 1 jar(s) pimentos, diced, 4 oz.
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sugar (i used splenda)

Instructions

  • In large mixing bowl, combine the two cheeses.
  • Mix with your hands until the two cheeses are totally blended throughout.
  • In a medium microwave-safe mixing bowl, place the room temperature cream cheese.
  • Cream it, using a fork or an electric mixer. If not soft enough to cream easily, microwave for 15 – 20 seconds.
  • When smooth, add mayo, vinegar, spices and sugar. Again, cream until mix is smooth.
  • Fold in the pimentos until well-distributed in the mix.
  • Add cream cheese mixture to the two blended cheeses in large mixing bowl.
  • Using a fork, slowly incorporate the cheeses into the cream cheese mixture until all cheese is moistened and well-blended.
  • Continue to blend until you achieve desired texture – anywhere from chunky to smooth – your choice.
  • You can serve immediately with crackers, celery sticks, or use in a sandwich. Or you can refrigerate and serve chilled.
  • Flavor will intensify as it sits.

Enjoy!
