Homemade Pimento Cheese

p-cheese-3p-cheese-1Every good southern lady should have a pimento cheese recipe in their back pocket. I made this recipe for the first time a few weeks ago. My friends were having a wine and cheese party and I decided to bring a few “southern lady” cheese dishes, including this pimento cheese recipe!
Most pimento cheese recipes use mayonnaise, but in all honestly, I’m not a huge fan of mayo. I’ve used greek yogurt in place of mayo in chicken salad with great success, so I decided to use it in my pimento cheese recipe as well! It’s healthier and I think it tastes better!

8 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese
4 oz pepper jack cheese
1/2 C plain greek yogurt
1/2 t ground pepper
dash of salt
dash of cayenne

Mix and refrigerate! This recipe is perfect for any party or tail gate!
