Jalapeno Pimento Cheese



Submitted by Ann Kelly


 I LOVE pimento cheese, but I am VERY picky about my pimento cheese as well. I DO NOT do store bought pimento cheese but it is SO easy to make your own. This is my regular pimento cheese, but I really enjoy this spicier version.
 4 cups Mexican style shredded cheese
1/2 cup jalapeno slices (diced)
4 oz jar of diced pimentos
1 1/2 cups mayo
salt, pepper, and garlic to taste.(I don't use my House Seasoning since I like this a little salty)

 Put everything in a bowl and mix. Then let sit for at least an hour for all the flavors  to blend well.

 And this is my favorite way to enjoy this, on regular potato chips.

  5. Oh my word...this brought back memories. I am originally from the north. When I came south for college my friends made fun of me because I had no clue what pimiento cheese was. Knowing what's in it Im not sure I could ever try it :( Thanks for sharing at Toot Your Horn Tuesday :)

  6. MY dad absolutely loves pimento cheese, and he puts hot peppers on almost everything. So I think he would love your recipe. I might just have to surprise him with a homemade batch. ;)

    Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday. Hope to see you again this week.

    Blessings,

  9. there is a deli here in my town that sells their own homemade jalapeno pimento cheese spread, and I LOVE it so I'm very happy to come across this recipe!!

    by the way, my absolute favorite thing to do with the jalapeno pimento cheese spread is twice baked potatoes!! Scoop them out, mash the insides along with lots of the cheese spread, and pile it back in the skins and bake till bubbly and browned on top! SO SO SO good!! perfect with steaks on the grill.

  11. This is SO much better than store-bought pimiento cheese! I really like the zing that the jalapenos add!

  12. This is so good! Made a batch for company last weekend. I don't like anything too hot so just added a few slices of jalapenos to give it the flavor. It was a big hit! I'm making a double batch to take to a reunion this weekend. Thanks for this recipe :) We like it with Sundried Tomato and Basil Wheat Thins.

  14. Do you use salt AND garlic salt? I noticed in your picture you have a bottle of garlic salt, but in the ingredients you say garlic. I'm making it for a school bridal shower and want to make sure everyone doesn't rush the punch bowl! :)

    1. I do use garlic salt and salt, I usually use more garlic salt than salt when cooking but like this a little more salty.

    Wanted to know if it you were using fresh jalapenos, canned/marinated ones. Just looking at the picture and wasn't too sure. Thank you!

    1. I was wondering that as well. Photos look like marinated!

  17. I made this but it seemed to be missing something. I ended up adding 8 oz cream cheese, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder. It tasted more like the Southern Pimento Cheese so yummy! Next time going to try making it with extra sharp cheddar cheese.
