Pimento Cheese Please!

I love pimento cheese.  When I was in Charleston this summer they eat pimento cheese on everything!  Filet with pimento cheese, pimento cheese fritters, pimento cheese biscuits, you name it.  You can buy pimento cheese at the grocery, but you know it’s not very good.  And you know it’s not good for you just by looking at the color!

Pimento cheese dip would be a great addition to your Super Bowl menu.  Serve it with some carrots and celery and that way you can trick everybody into thinking it’s healthy.  xoxo

Kosher salt to taste
