Pimiento cheese is a staple of picnics and lunches throughout the South. It is spread on sandwiches, used as a dip, and stuffed into celery ribs. Set a bowl of it out at a party with crackers and crudités, and it will disappear.

Ingredients

  • ½ pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 3 cups loosely packed)
  • ½ cup

Method

Mix together all the ingredients except the cayenne. Season to taste with cayenne.
