Pimento Cheese {Recipe}

Daniel and I have been a little obsessed with pimento cheese recently.  The pre-made pimento cheese at Kroger is so good! But, at almost $5 for a small portion I figured I would try and make some myself.  I still don’t have it perfect to match Kroger, but I’m still working on it!  This recipe was pretty close, and pretty delicious!

2 cups shredded sharp cheese
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup mayonnaise
Sprinkle garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper
1 jar pimentos – mostly drained, but I left a little bit of the juice to add to the cheese.
1 jalapeno pepper – diced
I found that I wanted it to be a little cheesier, so I added a bit more cheese.

  1. I love cheese and I have never heard of Pimento cheese before in my life. I'm thinking I'll probably like it because there are very few cheeses that I don't.
