Chipotle Cheddar Spread

Recipe from - Chef notes from the site-- I came up with this recipe as sort of an homage to that Southern staple Pimento cheese. Rather than use it as a simple cold spread, I topped my burgers with it and allowed it to melt a bit on the grill. Yum! Smoky, spicy, cheesy. What's not to love? It is also extremely tasty cold on a sandwich or on some crackers. Or wedged in the grooves of some celery. It is smoky, spicy and more than a little addictive.

  1. Mash together all of the ingredients with a fork in a medium bowl. Grill hamburgers until almost done. Evenly divide the cheese mixture and top each patty. Allow to cook 1-2 minutes or until just beginning to melt. Serve on hamburger rolls.

We loved this! I made it exactly as written for a snack on crackers. We'll try it on burgers next.

If you like spicy this might be right up your alley! I made a half recipe as a stand alone spread to use on wasa crisps and serve with veggie sticks. The second time I added a small clove of garlic. I chopped and blended the peppers, garlic, and seasonings in a mini chopper and then stirred into the cheese and mayo. Easy & delicious.
