Pimento Cheese

Pimento Cheese

Adapted from Angie Conroy


If you can't find pimento peppers, substitute roasted red bell peppers.


  1. 1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated white or yellow onion
    1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
    6-10 dashes Tabasco sauce, to taste
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 4-ounce jar of diced pimentos with juice
    1/8 teaspoon lemon pepper, or more to taste
    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons mayonnaise


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, mashing with a fork to form a thick, spreadable paste; if it's a bit loose, add more mayonnaise until it holds together.
  2. Season to taste, and serve with crackers.

Makes about 3 cups.
