How to Make Mary Beth's Spicy Pimento Cheese
- 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.
- Keep refrigerated. Excellent on sandwiches, crackers, celery or crispy breads such as pita chips or bagel chips.
