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.


YIELD
About 2 cups

INGREDIENTS

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.



DIRECTIONS

Add all ingredients except chives to a food processor and blend everything until smooth. Once smooth, mix in chives with a spatula until completely incorporated. Transfer to a sealed container and let sit for at least 2 hours before serving.



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.
