Pimento Cheese Spread
1 pound sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 pound Monterrey Jack cheese
2 medium kosher dill pickles (I prefer Valsic’s pickles, but I’m sure any brand would do)
2 or 3 cloves of garlic (three cloves yields a powerful garlic punch; adjust the amount to suit your taste)
1 4-ounce jar of pimentos (or roasted red peppers), drained
Chop all ingredients except the pimentos into large chunks. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse just long enough to roughly chop. You don’t want to puree the ingredients, just make them pliable for the next step.
Put in large bowl and mix with about 3 heaping tablespoons of good mayonnaise.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes to let the flavors blend, the put on the counter for 20 minutes to allow it to warm up again and soften before you use.
