Recipe by BeachGirl

You'll never buy pimiento cheese again! If you want a milder version, omit the cayenne pepper. Everyone asks for this very easy recipe. Try this in a grilled cheese sandwich! YUM.

Fantastic!!!! I used the fancy shredded cheese for a finer texture and I couldn't be more pleased. This whips up in a jiffy and is absolutely addicting! We had it on crackers, cold on a sliced bagette and we also broiled a few. OK, to be honest we can't keep our hands away from it! Thanks Beachgirl! This is destined to become a staple in our household!
