My mom made this and we all loved it and shared with everyone. In the south my grandmother would buy this from the store and make us a sandwich. This is so much better. Great as a spread or dip too!

How to Make Pimento Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Then add all the rest of the ingredients and beat until well blended.
