Easy Pimento Cheese

Easy Pimento Cheese

This Easy Pimento Cheese is SO flavorful and uses only a handful of everyday ingredients! Literally, you just throw everything in a bowl, stir and you're done. That's about as easy as it gets. As it sits in the fridge the flavors will develop even more, but it tastes great immediately, too. Even better if you can wait a few hours or overnight but who can wait that long??

Eat this as a dip or put it on a sandwich and melt it like a grilled cheese. Personally, I like to top my burgers with it or just eat it with some cucumber slices. You really cannot go wrong no matter how you choose to eat it.

Easy Pimento Cheese
Makes a little over 1 cup

8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese (like Organic Pastures raw organic cheddar)
1/4 cup good quality mayo (like Primal Kitchen or see my video to make your own)
2 Tablespoons diced pimentos
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder (or 1 Tbsp grated fresh onion)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 large garlic clove, pressed)
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1 Tablespoon diced fresh Serrano or jalapeƱo pepper (optional but I love the little kick it gives!)

Place everything in a bowl and mix well.

Seriously, that's it.

Easy, right?

This is the cheddar cheese I personally buy and love to use. It comes from a family farm in California and is available at Sprouts Farmers Market stores across the country. It's raw (unpasteurized), clean, organic and from grass-grazed cows that are loved and well cared for. Just check out their Instagram and follow their Instagram Stories @organicpasturesdairy for videos of life on their farm.

If you see it at your local market, I hope you'll give it a try and support raw dairy farmers who are working hard to bring us better, healthier versions of our favorite dairy products.

My favorite shredded cheddar!
