Equipment You Will Need

The main thing that I used in making this pimento cheese dip is my food processor. I’ve linked mine here. However, you don’t have to use a food processor. You can make this dip with the cheese still in the grated form. I just like it in the food processor. I feel like it’s much smoother. You can store this dip for up to a week in an airtight container. Use a mason jar or I also really like these Pyrex containers. I used them for so much.

Ingredients You Will Need

Mild Cheddar Cheese:

A lot pimento cheese recipes call for a sharp cheddar cheese. However, I chose a mild. I felt like it complimented the Swiss cheese so well and created a smooth, cohesive taste.

Swiss Cheese:

Ok. The Swiss in pimento cheese is a game-changer. The Swiss adds such a sweet bite. You’ll definitely want to use it every time.

Mayonnaise:

The typical binder in most spreads and dips. Use any type of mayonnaise you have or want.

Pimentos:

I used a 4 ounce jar of pimentos. However, don’t forget to drain the juice off!

Sugar:

One teaspoon of sugar is all you need to bring out that sweet flavor of the Swiss cheese!



Step by Step How to Make Pimento Cheese

Step One

Add your mild cheddar and Swiss cheese to a food processor with your S-shaped flat blade. Turn it on until cheeses are minced together.

STep two

Drain the juice out of the jar of pimentos then add in 3/4 of the jar to the food processor. Add in your sugar and mayonnaise. Turn on high until all is mixed together.

STep three

Remove the blade attachment from the food processor then add in the remainder of the pimentos to the mixture. Fold in with a spatula until whole pimentos are throughout the cheese. Transfer to an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!
