Pimento cheese has been a Southern staple for a long time, slathered on white bread and cut into quarters for baby showers, wedding teas, etc. For me it needs something extra – like jalapenos, and more than one type of cheese. I like to use sharp white cheddar combined with mild cheddar – it gives it a nice depth. Also, shredding the cheese yourself is key. I know it takes a bit more time, but it’s worth it in the end.

Jalapeno White Cheddar Pimento Cheese


  • 1 cup sharp white cheddar, shredded
  • 1 cup mild cheddar, shredded
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 4 oz. pimentos, chopped
  • 1 fresh jalapeno, diced
  • 1 tbsp. cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients and serve with crackers, pita chips or on bread as a sandwich.
