Turn pimiento cheese sandwich spread into a hot and spicy appetizer by adding chopped jalapeño pepper to the cheese mixture and baking it in a casserole dish. Instead of a 2-quart dish, you  can also bake the mixture in two (1-quart) baking dishes.


How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; stir in cheeses. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2-qt. baking dish.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until dip is golden and bubbly. Garnish, if desired. Serve with French bread cubes.

It's good but my dip came out too oily. Maybe add just a 1/2 cup of mayo next time.

I made almost the same exact recipe a couple of months ago... It is delicious! And good cold as well, even before you bake it - I think I actually liked it better cold, like regular pimiento cheese! Toothfairy1 - the roasted peppers are used here instead of pimientos - they are very similar but the pimiento is a chili pepper while the roasted peppers are usually red bell peppers. You can use either but you won't get the charred flavor from the pimientos as you would get from the roasted peppers...
