2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese
8oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 tsp each of garlic powder and onion powder
salt and pepper
1 (4oz) jar of diced pimento, drained
Also, cayenne pepper if wanted for heat
Place the Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, mayonnaise, garlic powder, onion powder, (minced jalapeno & cayenne, optional), and pimento into the large bowl of a mixer. Beat at medium speed, with paddle if possible or just a hand mixer will work also, until thoroughly combined. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
