I have always loved pimento cheese but have never made it myself. Mom's recipe of shredded cheese and mayonnaise (or the store-bought spread) was all I had ever tasted until I tasted a "Pimento Cheese Dip" that I really liked. The only thing that I was told was that it also had cream cheese in it but I could tell there was something else. Well, I decided to experiment and make my own version of the tasty spread/dip. It's great on a quick sandwich, wonderful on a grilled-cheese sandwich or served as a dip with tortilla chips and/or your favorite snack cracker.
