I am very sorry that I haven’t posted in such a long time! I have been off traveling, having fun, and haven’t been able to commit to NewsforChews as much as I would have liked. But, I am now back and dedicated to posting! While I was away, there were a few bachelorettes, weddings, dinner parties, and of course birthdays. One of my favorite recipes (and crowd’s favorite) that I made for a friend’s birthday was a baked pimento cheese dip. If you aren’t familiar with pimento, it is a type of sweet chili pepper. This dip is very common in the south and I was first introduced to it when I was in South Carolina. It has easily become my favorite dip to eat, and also bake. Follow Southern Living‘s recipe below for a a simple seven ingredient dump, stir, bake, and enjoy recipe!
1 3/4 cup mayo (I used 3/4 may and 1 cup Greek Yogurt)
1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimento, drained
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp finely grated onion (I used 1/2 tsp onion powder)
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
8 oz shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
8 oz shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350
Stir together first 5 ingredients in large bowl
Then, stir in cheeses
Spoon mixture into a lightly greased baking dish
Bake for 20 minutes or until dip is golden and bubbly
Serve hot (after it cools for a few minutes)! If there is any leftover, refrigerate, and the next day you can reheat or serve chilled!
