Tip: If you’re looking to amplify this recipe, buy your cheeses in whole blocks and grate them finely yourself. Pre-shredded cheeses can sometimes be coated with preservatives that dull the sharpness and prevent flavor from really shining through.Tip: If you want your pimento cheese to be super smooth without texture, just throw the ingredients in a food processor to smooth out to your preference.
