Kickin' Pimento Cheese Spread

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"Classic pimento cheese with creamy texture and a little extra kick. This is a great make-ahead dish. I love grilled pimento cheese sandwiches, and this one won't disappoint. Also a great topping for grilled burgers. I add more cayenne when I want more kick."

Followed recipe exactly. Family commented on how good it is and liked the extra hot kick to it.
