Pimento Cheese Dip

Is there anything more Southern than Pimento Cheese? Whether it is smeared on a cracker or part of a sandwich I love this classic recipe. Toss together right before the big game on TV or pack with you for a tailgate. I’ll be honest in saying as a kid, the thought of pimento cheese made me squirm, but as an adult I love its simplicity and versatility. If you’re like me and are a fan, I hope you take a quick minute to whip this recipe up — it’s delicious!
