My spicy homemade pimento cheese spread is loaded with yummy cheese, a little spice, and just enough mayo to hold it all together.

This spread is fantastic served with crackers as an appetizer.

And, this spread is phenomenal as a base for a sandwich.

If you don’t like any heat, just leave out the minced Serrano pepper.

My homemade pimento cheese spread is loaded with a mix of yummy cheeses and just enough spice.


  • 8 ounces Extra Sharp Cheddar
  • 8 ounces Sharp White Cheddar
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack Cheese with Peppers
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon course ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 small Serrano pepper, insides removed and discarded, and diced
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 4 ounce jar of pimento, drained


  1. Grate the cheeses using a hand grater or food processor.
  2. Mix grated cheeses, cream cheese, all spices, pimento, and serano pepper in a blender or food processor until thoroughly combined.
  3. Scrape this mixture into a bowl, cover, and chill at least 4 hours.


  • Use block cheese and grate it.  Do not use pre-shredded cheese.
  • The Serrano pepper does not give tremendous heat, especially when you remove the pulp and seeds.  Don’t be intimidated.

My Sandwich Recipe

I use Texas Toast Garlic French bread.

Next, place it in the oven and follow the box directions for the correct temperature.

Bake the bread for approximately 4 minutes.

Remove the bread from the oven and spread my garlic basil mayonnaise onto each slice.

Next, place pimento cheese on the bread slices.

Bake in the oven until the cheese is bubbly and melted.

Add cooked bacon, lettuce, and garden tomato slices to one side of the toast.

Place the slices together.
