Pimento Cheese Recipe – A must-have recipe when you want a delicious, go-to party pleaser! It’s made with 3 types of cheese that give this pimento cheese amazing flavor that is always a hit!
I’m in love with Pimento Cheese … but not just any pimento cheese. This is what I call a “grown up” version of one of everyone’s favorite spreads.
It’s cheesy … It’s tangy … It’s spicy … It’s smokey …
this pimento cheese recipe is a classic!
So what makes this pimento cheese so heavenly you might ask? Well to start with, this savory dip has 3 different types of cheese. Extra sharp white cheddar, extra sharp cheddar and pepper jack. The combination of these 3 cheeses gives the spread an unexpected, kind of tangy flavor that you just can’t put your finger on but … you know you just love it. You’ll seriously have to stop yourself from eating too much.
Next comes the pimentos and then … drum-roll please …
“grown-up” pimento cheese recipe?
Chipotle Tabasco sauce and fresh jalapenos! This happens to be the “grown up” part of the pimento cheese spread.
Uh … yes please.
Chipotle Tabasco sauce is something that I put on almost everything. It gives food a yummy, smokey flavor that I’m in love with. As far as the jalapenos go, I’m not talking about the pickled jalapenos you get in a jar. I’m talking about fresh jalapenos you buy in the produce section and cut up yourself. They help to deepen the peppery flavor of the pimentos and just give the spread a ton of flavor.
I mean seriously, this stuff is good.
Kids don’t like spicy food? No worries, just leave the jalapenos out. It might take the “grown-up” aspect out but it will still be delicious!
If you need something for a party or you just want something in the fridge the kids can grab after school, this spread is perfect.
Whether you want to slap it on a couple of pieces of bread for a sandwich or spread it over some crackers or baguettes as a dip … this stuff is the bomb!
Trust me … You need this in your life 🙂Print
