as a kid i have tried many sandwich combos and many failed. let's take the grape jelly and mayo-fail! peanut butter and pickles-fail! bologna and potato salad-fail, no wait, that was gooood. anyway, one of my all time faves is pimento cheese and nacho cheese doritos-excellent. it is even better when the pimento cheese is homemade. i had a whole bag of chips on the counter and to eat them by themselves, no thanks, so i whipped up a batch of the sandwich spread. i have posted before on my pimento cheese, but this time i made it a little different. it is not bad, not quite as tangy as i usually make. it is a good starter pimento cheese for those folks who don't have a clue what i am talking about. pimento cheese, huh? it's creamy and rather mild, not too mention pale. go easy when spreading it on your squishy white bread though, it is still very rich. hmmmmm, i wonder what cool ranch doritos would taste like, tasty too, i bet. enjoy.
beth's pimento cheese spread
with your mixer, blend the following
6 oz soften cream cheese
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup mayo
1 4oz jar of chopped/diced pimentos, not drained
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1-2 dashes of hot sauce
pinch of sugar
whip till well blended. taste and adjust seasonings. some folks like a little onion powder in theirs, not me. put in the fridge to chill and let the flavors blossom(how cute). i like this on fresh, plain ole white bread, but it is great on crackers, too.
