Outta time but in need of pimento cheese? Whip up this ultra-quick remix of the Southern staple.

Ok. I get it. Pimento cheese is a classic. And you don’t mess with the classics. But I’m a devotee of delicious, and this recipe is downright delicious. We can debate all night whether it’s “truly” the original pimento cheese. But it’s got the creaminess, the bite, the heat, and it’s ready lickety split. Try it!

Ingredients

Notes:
About the Bayou Bite. This Louisiana BBQ sauce recipe is spicy and sweet with Chipotle Tabasco, roasted jalapeños, red peppers, and Steen's Cane Syrup. Referred to as Bayou Bite, this delicious sauce blends sweet and hot peppers for a mildly spicy finishing and dipping sauce for ribs, chicken, steaks, chops and so much more.

Method

  • Prep. Mix the two ingredients in a bowl with a fork. You can leave it lumpy, or blend it smooth. Your choice. I like it lumpy.
  • Serve. Serve on crusty bread or crackers.
