This quick-fix dip is a perfect match for Homemade Soft Pretzels. Don't try to substitute a more natural cheese in place of the processed cheese, like Velveeta, the recipe calls for—it's what makes the dip so smooth and melty. Pimientos (also called pimentos) are large, red chili peppers that resemble a bell pepper, but with a sweet, more complex favor. This recipe calls for pre-prepared, canned pimientos.
