Pimento Cheese

I love Pimento Cheese... case in point, I had it twice last weekend. Now, I used to hate the stuff. Maybe the texture or the thought of a cheese salad freaked me out, but now my taste buds think it is divine.

With all this spare time on my hands, I decided to make some for the hubs and I. Here is the Southern Living recipe: Pimento Cheese with a kick.

Ingredients
2 (8 oz) blocks extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (8 oz) blocks mild Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
2 (7 oz) jars diced pimento, drained
1 (12 oz) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained
1/2 cup pickled jalapeno pepper slices, drained
1/4 cup mayo
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

My cheats: I bought the pre-packaged cheese because I was lazy and put in less pimento than called for.

Directions
- Process first 3 ingredients, in batches, in a food processor until well blended.
- Add pimento and remaining ingredients, pulse until desired consistency
- Cover and chill up to 1 day

You can so chill it up to 5 days. Don't be wasteful people :)
A bowl of cheesy goodness!
