Pimento Cheese Spread

I love all dips.  Any kind of dip.  Spicy dips, bland dips, ones you use crackers to dip, ones you use veggies to dip.  And don't forget the chips.  I love the ones you use chips to dip.  Creamy, thick, runny, cold, hot, I'm  not a hater to any.

I love dips.

I've often said that if I EVER GET A COOKBOOK DEAL (any publishers out there reading?), I would devote a whole chapter just to dips.  They are essentially "the other food group".  I could live on dip and dip alone.  A healthy choice?  No.  But, I'd do it anyway.

We went over to a friend's house last night and had a great time - mingled, played corn hole and ate.  A lot.  We brought our meat to grill, along with this dessert and this Pimento Cheese Spread.  It was a hit.  We started with a big batch and only came home with a small bowl of it left.

I'm imagining a side of this with my lunch today.

Pimento Cheese Spread
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz. shredded monterey jack cheese
2/3 c. mayo
1 small jar pimentos (drained)
1/4 c. shallots or minced onion
1 glove garlic, minced
1/2 t. cayenne
2 t. hot sauce
Ritz crackers

Combine all ingredients and chill before serving.

Our friends were surprised to hear it had cayenne pepper and hot sauce in it because it wasn't hot at all.  In fact, when I make it again I may add more to suite my spicy needs, but it was great this way as well.

I have a few hours this morning to chill and relax before going into work - so I am going to do just that!  Be thankful for your Thursday and enjoy your day!
