I wasn't familiar with pimento cheese spread before I moved to Dallas. It appears to be one of those southern dishes people grew up with and love with good reason; it's delicious.
Be careful though of the ready made stuff from the grocery store, it can be awful. Fortunately it's easy to make at home.
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp prepared horseradish
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 lb smoked Gouda cheese, finely shredded
1/4 lb sharp cheddar, finely shredded
1/3 cup roasted piquillo peppers or pimentos, chopped
freshly ground black pepper
Combine the mayonnaise, horseradish and mustard in a bowl. Add the cheeses, peppers and a few grinds of black pepper and toss to combine well.
Serve with crackers or use as a sandwich spread.
