Nancy's Pimento Cheese recipe is simple and easy to make. Her favorite way to eat pimento cheese was on celery sticks, but you can serve it on crackers, tortilla chips, sandwiches, and even apples.
  • ⅓ pound of grated Black Rind Hoop Cheese
  • ⅔ pound of grated Red Rind Hoop Cheese
  • 4 oz jar of pimentos chopped
  • Duke's Mayonnaise (or your favorite)
  1. In a bowl, combine the cheeses, chopped pimentos with liquid, and just enough mayonnaise to bind the mixture well. Let the pimento cheese rest in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before serving.
To spice up your pimento cheese, add finely chopped jalapeƱos, cayenne pepper, chipotle, or smoked paprika to suit your taste.

Serve on celery sticks, with apple slices or crackers, or as a sandwich. It also makes a great grilled cheese sandwich. If you try a grilled pimento cheese sandwich, add some thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples for a real treat!
