  • 8 ounce block of cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounce can pimento peppers
  • 3 tablespoons diced jalapeno peppers
  • 1 teaspoon minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt


  • Whip the cream cheese in a medium sized bowl for 1-2 minutes
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and whip the mixture again until smooth and homogenous.
  • Chill in the fridge for one hour.
  • Serve with crackers, veggies, etc. and enjoy!


  • It is best to store this cheese dip in an airtight container.
  • It’ll keep in the fridge for up to two weeks. 
  • I don’t recommend storing pimento cheese in the freezer. It dramatically changes the consistency of the dip and it won’t taste as fresh compared to when it is stored in the fridge.
  • For serving at an outdoor buffet or picnic, serve in a metal bowl nested inside of a slightly larger bowl filled with very icy water. (For food safety, keep it below 40°F.)
