Pimento Cheese Dip/Spread

Pimento Cheese

 



Are you thinking a healthy veggies tray with an awesome dip would be a fabulous addition to your Super Bowl Spread?  Great idea.  This homemade Pimento Cheese Dip is so fresh and so, so  good – perfect with some crunchy veggies or crackers.  Beware- you’ll find it somewhat addictive!

My most vivid memory of Pimento Cheese is an orange spread that came in cute little jars which you then spread into celery sticks at Thanksgiving.  Don’t you remember that iconic appetizer?

Fresh and creamy Pimento Cheese Dip is for far more than celery {although I still love that combination.}  Use it as a spread for biscuits, sandwiches, and burgers.   It also makes a wicked Grilled Cheese!   Love Jalapeno Poppers?  Try stuffing them with this tasty cheese spread-  you’ll love it.  This Pimento Cheese may just become your new favorite!
