An iconic staple of the American South, pimento cheese is gaining fans across the country. This flavorful spread is typically made with shredded cheddar, pimento peppers, seasonings, and a touch of mayonnaise. Some versions add jalapeños to kick the spice level up a notch. Pimento cheese can be spread on crackers, toast, or celery sticks for a quick snack, or used in hot dishes such as grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers, and macaroni & cheese.
