Jalapeno Pimento Cheese

 I recently went to a sweet little tea room with a bunch of girlfriends. I ordered a sandwich sampler plate and fell in love with their jalapeno pimento cheese. I've always loved pimento cheese and adding jalapenos made it even better. I knew I had to tackle making my own version of spicy pimento cheesiness.

What you need:
  • 8 oz. shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon garlic flakes or powder
  • 1 teaspoon cut chives
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 4 oz. jar diced pimentos, drained 
  • salt and pepper, to taste
What you do:

Place all ingredients in a stand mixing bowl.

Mix until well combined.
 My favorite way to eat pimento cheese...in a grilled cheese!
