homemade pimento cheese on cracker

Anyone love homemade pimento cheese? This month’s recipe comes from Keith, significant other of CFEP’s Director of Planning and Funding, Aimee.



1 - 8 oz. block of cheddar cheese (grated)

1 - 8 oz. block of Monterey jack cheese (grated)

1 cup “Dukes” mayonnaise (I use a little less)

1 - 4oz jar of pimentos (drained)

2 Tbsp. cilantro (finely chopped)

2 Tbsp. diced jalapeño (from jar)

2 Tbsp. juice from pickled jalapeño jar



Mix the grated cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese together, and gradually add mayo. Add in the cilantro, diced jalapeño , and pickled jalapeño juice. Stir everything together. Mix in the pimentos. Refrigerate for at least 10-15 minutes before serving. Delicious served with pretzel chips!
