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.

My family loves pimento cheese so I am always looking for a new recipe to try. I have never tried a recipe using sour cream but this was very good. It tasted more like a cheese spread instead of traditional pimento cheese because you didn't get a strong mayonnaise taste. I did add a little extra cheddar cheese. It was very flavorful and I will make it again. Read More

Served this with baguettes bakes in oven with olive oil then sprinkled with herbs while hot. Topped with tomato jam. This was a hit at Thanksgiving and will definitely make it again. I will take a picture the next time! Read More
