Pepper Jack Pimento Cheese

This pepper jack pimento cheese is so easy to put together and will pretty much become your favorite go-to cheesy snack. 

Pepper Jack Pimento Cheese

I've spent my entire life in California, so I was tardy to the pimento cheese party. In fact, I have yet to have actually tried it other than my own experiments with pimento cheese. I've never seen it on a menu in any restaurant. 

What a shame! I'm here to say that everyone on the west coast is totally missing out.

This pimento cheese recipe is easier to make as just about any other recipe. All you need is some grated pepper jack cheese, grated cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, and a jar of pimentos. Plus a little time for the flavors to meld. That's it. 

Serve this pimento cheese on crackers for an amazing appetizer. Of course, I'm not too proud to admit I've been known to have leftover crackers and pimento cheese for breakfast.

If you are like me (not from the south), please suspend your judgment and give this a try. I always thought the idea of cheese mixed with mayo was kind of weird until I tried it. At that point, I was completely sold. 

If you like pimento cheese, you should also try my classic pimento cheese recipe and my roasted pimento cheese recipe, which includes the "controversial" ingredient, cream cheese. 

For a fun take on cheese spread, you definitely need to make a halloween cheese ball that looks like a pumpkin and is coated in Doritos!

Pepper jack cheese is one of my favorite ingredients and I always have some in my cheese drawer for "cheese emergencies." It's so good and delicious in tacos and quesadillas.

  1. This sounds so yummy! I'm not a huge pimento cheese fan but I like the idea of of pepper jack cheese in this

    1. I never was either, but somehow I became a convert!

  2. HOnestly, I don't care for pimento cheese, but after looking at your recipe - I am thinking I haven't had GOOD pimento cheese. Your recipe sounds so delicious that I am going to make it!

  3. Well I don't think I've ever had pimento cheese at all. Guess I have to get some!

    1. I always turned my nose up at the concept, until I tried it and fell in love!

  4. I love mayo-cheese combo. Every time I pick the jar and replace it, but your recipe has convinced me to try. It sounds yum to me.

  5. Pimento cheese is not a popular thing where I live in the Midwest, but every time I see it is looks like such a great bite!
