Pimiento cheese is one of those recipes that won’t win any prizes for how it looks, but it’s delicious and really easy to make! If you’ve never heard of it, don’t worry, it’s a Southern thang. This recipe is slightly modified from a book called 1001 Ways to Cook Southern.
Stir all the ingredients together and keep chilled:
¾ c. mayo
2 oz. pimientos, drained
½ t. soy sauce
1/4 t. onion powder
1/8 t. chili powder or 1/4 t. hot sauce
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
Pimiento cheese tastes great on crackers or sandwiches, and it’s much tastier than the kind from the store.
