Miss. Mattie's Southern Pimiento Cheese

This recipe goes with "Some Like It Hot" Grilled Pimiento Cheese Sandwiches "

Makes about 5 cups

1/2        cup chopped pecans
1           cup mayonnaise
1           (7-oz.) jar diced pimiento, drained
1/2        cup chopped jarred sweet-hot pickled jalapeno pepper slices 
1           tablespoon liquid from sweet-hot pickled jalapeno pepper slices
4          cups freshly grated mild Cheddar cheese (1 lb.)     **Garnishes: sweet-hot pickled jalapeno pepper slices, toasted chopped pecans**

Bake 1/2 cup chopped pecans at 350° in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through. Cool 20 minutes. Stir together mayonnaise, diced pimiento, pickled jalapeño pepper slices, liquid from sweet-hot pickled jalapeño pepper slices, and toasted pecans. Stir in Cheddar cheese until well blended. Garnish, if desired.

I use with The Original Texas Sweet & Hot Jalapeños. You can use what's in your area.

Miss. Mattie's Southern Pimiento Cheese gets its sweet and spicy taste from sweet-hot pickled jalapeno peppers. The toasted pecans add to its Southern flair.
