Description

Old Fashioned Pimento Cheese Recipe with just a few easy ingredients! This is one of our favorite cold appetizers for holiday parties or tailgating!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, freshly grated
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese (not fresh, the kind in a block), freshly grated
  • 1 roasted red pepper, drained on paper towels and finely chopped (or two ounces drained chopped jarred pimentos)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha or other hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir gently to combine the seasonings without mushing the cheese too much.
  2. Taste, and adjust the seasonings or spice level to your preference. If the pimento cheese seems very dry, add a tiny bit more sour cream and mayo, in equal amounts, to achieve a texture you like.
  3. Devour!

Notes

I love love love this on its own with crackers, but it is REALLY yummy with something sweet such as apple slices or green tomato jam. Balance your flavors, man!
