For a smoky twist on a Southern specialty, use smoked cheddar for bolder flavor in your pimiento cheese dip.




  • In a food processor combine 2 cups shredded smoked cheddar, 3/4 cup mayo, 8 oz. softened cream cheese, 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and a pinch of cayenne. Stir in 4 oz. diced pimiento, then serve with crackers and crudites.
