Pimento Cheese Spread - The Southern Lady Cooks

Pimento cheese spread is one you will make over and over again and there will never be any left.  My family loves this spread and I make it whenever I am having guests over to watch football or anytime family comes so we will have something to munch on.  Serve with just about any kind of crackers or scoops or whatever you like.  You could double the recipe for a large group.  This keeps well several days refrigerated.  Use your own preferences on spices and hot sauce to make it your own. Southerners love pimento cheese and it is like a staple in the South!  You might also like our recipe for shrimp dip.
