Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Spread – No Pimentos Here!

Roasted Red Pepper cheese spread recipe

Roasted Red Pepper Cheese Spread – No Pimentos Here!

Our take on the same spread using pimentos instead of roasted red peppers.


  • 8 ounces Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 8 ounces Pepperjack cheese shredded
  • 1/2 each roasted red pepper chopped
  • 3 tablespoons scallion green tops chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise


  • Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl EXCEPT CHESSES.
  • Mix other ingredients well.
  • Add cheeses by folding the shreds in slowly.
  • Chill and serve with crackers, tortillas or on sandwich.


This is a little spicier than the normal Pimento Cheese Spread, but it is great on sandwiches – try it on a burger! Recipe courtesy of Maggie Mae’s on the Bluffs, Florida.
