Creamy 3-Ingredient Southern Pimento Cheese Recipe Has a Surprise Ingredient

Pimento cheese is a classic southern recipe. Many pimento cheese recipes are made with grated cheddar cheese, but this one uses soft processed cheese, which creates a creamier pimento cheese that can be used as a dip, spread or sandwich filling. It's a bit different than some homemade pimento cheese spreads, but we think you'll love it.

Serve this creamy southern homemade pimento cheese recipe at your next family get-together with vegetables and crackers. It's vegetarian and gluten-free. We've heard that some people like to stuff it inside of chicken breasts and fry them in a skillet. Oh, my. That sounds amazing! How do you like to use pimento cheese?

Yum! I grew up eating pimento cheese sandwiches, but my mom always bought it premade in a tub. Homemade is SO much better. I like to add chopped jalapeno to mine.
This looks so savory...
Spice is nice 😋
Elisa Schmitz
Sounds delicious (and easy, too).
Melissa Vickers
Glad to see this made with mayonnaise and not Miracle Whip. Pimento cheese always makes me think of my mom. She didn't make it really often but it was always just simple with cheese, mayo, and pimentos. The Velveeto must make it extra creamy! The only store bought stuff I buy is Palmetto Farms--it tastes the closest to my mom's though it has pepper in it. Mom was not a pepper user. I love to slather bread with pimento cheese and heat it up in the toaster oven for breakfast!
Elisa Schmitz
Isn't it wonderful how food brings back so many memories of our loved ones? Thank you for sharing the story about your mom, Melissa Vickers . Sounds lovely. And now I will need to try this recipe on bread in the toaster oven for breakfast. Yum! Donna John Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead

Sorry, but that is gross. Born and breed southern says Velveeta is cheap, non-food crap that just isn't there! Real cheese isn't that difficult, is it? A few seconds in the food processor, pimentos and mayo!
Donna John
Sorry this recipe isn't for you. Velveeta is used in a lot of recipes to make it creamy. Spread on a cracker it is delicious. You could definitely substitute shredded cheddar.
Delphine Kirkland
Haha, I know what it is. It's just such low quality "food" and so far away from real food and high quality cheeses. After milk protein it's food starch, canola oil and gelatin. Yet, it has 4× more lactose than real cheese. IThere are many real cheeses that ate creamy. I wouldn't feed Velveeta to anyone I had well-wishes for. I wouldn't want to see a stray puppy eating it, what to speak of a beloved child. SAD, standard American diet stuff that makes Americams the sickest, fattest people in any developed country.
