My mom has been making this recipe for several years now. I have to confess that I really hate pimento cheese. Really hate it. I wouldn’t try her recipe for a long long time. This fall, I finally decided to try some, and it was wonderful! It wasn’t all watery and gloppy like so many pimento cheeses that I’ve tried in the past. This was so great and I found myself craving it from time to time. So this holiday season, I got her to show me how to make it and I made it for our Christmas Caroling party. The entire bowl was gone very quickly. We served it with crackers and also on sandwiches. I urge you to try this, even if you are a pimento cheese skeptic.
This also uses a specific ingredient that makes the dish. I don’t normally like to specify brands or anything but in this case I definitely reccommend going with it. It’s velveeta shreds. It may be a tad hard to find, but I found it at wal-mart. If for some reason you can’t find it, I suggest maybe getting a block cheddar cheese and shredding it in really thick shreds.
