Mary Beth's Spicy Pimento Cheese

My friends beg me to make this for their birthdays and Christmas. It is ridiculously easy and a little spicy. Duke's mayonnaise is the secret ingredient... it just doesn't taste the same without it!

Serves:

4-6

Prep:

15 Min

Ingredients

2 c
finely shredded sharp cheddar
1 c
finely shredded italian cheese blend, or other white cheese
1 medium
jar diced pimentos, undrained
2 Tbsp
(heaping) duke's mayonnaise
1- 1 1/2 Tbsp
yellow mustard
1 tsp
crazy jane salt
1 - 1 1/2 tsp
emeril's essence
1/2 - 1 tsp
crushed red pepper flakes
coarse ground black pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix cheeses, pimentos, mayo and mustard until well-blended. Add spices and continue to stir until distributed throughout cheese mixture. Spice measurements may be adjusted to taste...I add more essence and red pepper for an extra spicy kick. Die-hard spice addicts may enjoy using pepper jack cheese for the white cheese.
2
Keep refrigerated. Excellent on sandwiches, crackers, celery or crispy breads such as pita chips or bagel chips.
