Recipe By Abbey Cochran, Savory Spice—South End/Charlotte, NC

One of our Charlotte, NC (a.k.a. the Queen City) spice merchants submitted this recipe for everybody's favorite southern cheese spread. She gives her version a slight twist by adding Ghost Pepper Salt. Don't be scared of the spicy salt; it adds just right kick of heat to the sharp cheese and tangy seasonings.

Serving Suggestions

Makes a great addition to loaded cheese fries, brisket sandwiches, or stuffed peppers. Warm it up to make a cheese dip, or just serve it cold as a cracker spread.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes a smooth pimento cheese. If you want it to be a little more chunky, only use 1/2 cup mayonnaise and mash all the ingredients together with a fork instead of using a food processor.
