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!

How to Make Mary Beth's Spicy Pimento Cheese

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix 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.
