  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 pound sharp cheddar cheese , coarsely shredded
  • 1/2 cup diced drained pimientos (4 oz jar)


  • In a food processor (I used my blender), blend the mayonnaise, onion and hot sauce. Add the shredded cheese and pulse until finely chopped. Add the pimientos and pulse until combined. Transfer the pimiento cheese to a bowl. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
