I got this recipe from an o.r. nurse I worked with many years ago. She had made it for our dept Christmas party. I've made it many many times since and it's always a hit. I double the recipe when taking to a gathering because it disappears so quickly. It's a real winner, I promise!

- 1⁄2 lb American cheese
- 8 ounces cream cheese

- 2 tablespoons pimientos (or more)
