Southern Rail Pimento Cheese

Servings: 1 Quart

Ingredients

  • 1 pound cream cheese
  • ¾ cups mayonnaise
  • 4 cups shredded yellow cheese
  • 3 jalapeños
  • 5 large red bell peppers
  • 2 bunches of green onions
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cajun spice
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Crystal’s Hot Sauce 2 teaspoons kosher salt

Instructions

  • Roast or grill the red peppers until they are charred on all sides but not burnt
  • Place them in an airtight container to "sweat" and cool so they become easier to peel
  • Peel and de-seed the peppers (you can purchase pre-roasted bell peppers at your favorite grocery)
  • Medium dice the peppers and place them in a strainer to let the excess juice drain off. NOTE adding in too much bell pepper juice will cause the cheese to turn a funky pink color
  • Small dice the jalapeños (remove the seed and stem) and set aside
  • Whip the cream cheese in a kitchen aid mixer with the paddle attachment till smooth
  • Add in the mayonnaise and mix until combined, make sure to scrape down the side of the bowl with a rubber spatula
  • Add in the garlic powder, green onion, vinegar, cayenne pepper, hot sauce and salt. Mix again to fully incorporated
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and add in the shredded cheese, bell peppers, and jalapeños
  • mix by hand just until combined, ***DO NOT OVER MIX***
  • Store in airtight container in the fridge until ready to use
