Smokey cheddar, spicy chipotle and meaty bacon converts everyone over to pimento cheese love.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Chop and gently cook bacon until crispy. Drain and cool.
  2. While the bacon is cooking, grate the cheese and combine with the softened cream cheese and mayonnaise.
  3. Once the bacon has cooled, fold in the bacon and then chopped chipotle peppers to taste.
  4. Salt or pepper if desired.
  5. Top with chopped scallions.
  6. Serve with crostini, vegetables or even as a filling in a sandwich on toasted bread.
Notes
The original recipe from Parlor Market called for twice as much mayonnaise, but you get a nicer, thicker pimento cheese using a smaller amount. If you want a thinner pimento cheese though, go for it and double the amount of mayo in your batch. I highly recommend adding the green onion.
