Aunt Elaine's Pimento Cheese

Pimento Cheese, Cheese

My sister-in-law makes the best Pimento Cheese ever!  My husband always requests it for his birthday.  So his birthday was September 24th and of course, he got his Pimento Cheese.  And I got the recipe to share.  Thanks, Elaine!

Aunt Elaine's Pimento Cheese

16 oz. block of sharp cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz. cream cheese
4 oz. sliced pimento, not drained
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons pepper
1 cup or more Mayo (Elaine uses Dukes Lite)
2-3 Tablespoons diced jalapeno peppers, optional (Elaine uses Mt.Olive diced jalapeno peppers in a jar)

Put half of cheese and other ingredients in food processor.  Mix together. Then add rest of cheese.   Process until creamy.  Let set in fridge.

**Elaine says it is trial and error as far as the mayo. You want it to be creamy like pudding.  You can also use different kinds of cheeses like white cheddar, Monterrey Jack or a combination of two cheeses.
