Secret To Better Pimento Cheese


Better Pimento Cheese, delicious pimento cheese with a few secret ingredients to wow your guest.  Mix all the ingredients together,  put it in the fridge and the flavor just keeps getting better and better.  



I have a friend, Pat Williams, that makes the most delicious Pimento Cheese you will ever eat.  My family calls it Better Pimento Cheese.


There are a few secrets that she shared with me about what makes hers stand out.

One thing, she uses is an extra sharp cheddar cheese, (preferably Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese that she shreds herself), Helmsman's mayonnaise, and here is the crescendo diced Jalapenos

How yummy is that?  She says that if you can wait, it taste better after being refrigerated for a day or so.  Thank you, Pat, for sharing your wonderful recipe with me!



Better Pimento Cheese
Recipe Source: Pat Williams

Ingredients:
8 oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese (Cabot Extra Sharp recommended)
1 4 oz. jar diced pimentos
1-1/2 cups Helmsman's mayonnaise
2-3 jalapenos seeded and diced

Directions:
In a large bowl, shred cheese; add pimentos and mix well with mayonnaise. Add jalapeno and mix well again. Serve at room temperature or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Depending on how moist you like your pimento cheese, you can add more or less mayonnaise. We like a lot of jalapenos, but you can adjust the recipe to your taste.

  2. Yum! It reminds me of Palmetto Cheese (the brand from SC) because one of their kinds has jalapenos in the mix! They also have cream cheese and I think pepper jack with the sharp cheddar! So yum!

    I think I may make yours tomorrow! Thanks for sharing!

    I hate to admit this and probably shouldn't, but I don't know if my hubby likes pimento cheese or not! I've had the store bought kind a few times, but never homemade. I'll put this on my list to make for our next potluck :)
