  • 3 cups shredded or grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 4 ounce jar pimentos, undrained
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise I used Dukes
  • 5 to 6 drops hot sauce more or less
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika


  • Combine all ingredients and mix with mixer.


If it's been in the fridge, let it set out a few minutes and stir before serving, the cream cheese does make it thick.
