Southwestern Pimento Cheese

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by daskds

I hate the mushy store bought style of pimento cheese. I prefer it a little drier than the traditional one so I came up with this. You can add more mayo to moisten if you want. This recipe should have texture so don't over mix everything. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips. We like this spicy and usually add more heat.

I added more mayonnaise and doubled the jalapeno and it was close to what I can get at Whole Foods

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 7 ingredients. Stir in mayo until combined. Taste and add salt / pepper if necessary. I find the cheese and spices usually do not need additional salt.
  2. If you can find it, use chipotle chile powder - it give the dip a wonderful smoky taste.
