I love pimento cheese, so I thought I would kick the traditional recipe up a little. I hope this version does this standard Southern fare justice. It has a kick, so leave out the Tobasco sauce if you like, but if you don't mind a little extra pep, then by all means, add as much as you like. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Michael's creamy and tangy pimento cheese is quite a treat! Using freshly grated cheddar and Swiss cheese is key. Not only does it add a fresh taste, but it also has a different texture than the pre-shredded cheese. Tabasco and horseradish add a nice kick. We love how you can adjust the amount of heat to your liking. Serve this as an appetizer or with bread as a sandwich. Either way, you can't go wrong!
