A delicious creamy cheesy spread with tang and bite!
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 8 ounce of goat cheese
  • ¾ cup of mayonnaise
  • 12 ounces of Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 8 ounces of Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack
  • 1 Jalapeno chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of grated Scallions
  • 7 ounces of finely chopped pimento (aka...roasted peppers)
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
  • 1-2 cloves of finely grated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon of freshly grounded pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  1. Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, goat cheese, scallions, garlic. salt & pepper in the bowl of your electric mixer. Now it is time to mix all these ingredients until everything is combined thoroughly. Here's a tip...make sure your cream cheese and goat cheese is room temperature...it creams easier but it is still ok if there is a lump or two : )
  2. Now it is time to combine the grated cheese in with the creamy mixture. Just keep folding and mixing until everything is mixed together.
  3. Time to fold the pimentos and parsley into the mixture.
  4. Tips...if you love your cheese extra creamy...add the shredded cheese in smaller amounts...that way if you hit the consistency that you love...you can then stop adding cheese. If you like it thicker...then you can add more...it is all about how you like it!
  5. For best results...allow the Pimento Cheese Spread to chill for about 4 hours before using.
