My favorite recipe for Southern-style homemade pimento cheese.  It’s super-easy to make in just 10 minutes and tastes delicious as a spread, dip, or however you’d like to serve it!




  1. Stir together. Combine cream cheese, pimentos, cheddar cheese, green onions, mayo, garlic powder, paprika, hot sauce and a pinch of salt and black pepper in a mixing bowl, and stir until evenly combined.
  2. Season. Taste and season with additional salt, pepper and/or hot sauce, if needed.
  3. Serve. Serve immediately, or transfer to a sealed jar or food storage container and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
