Jalapeño Fauxminto Cheese

Submitted by Marla Stanton

I call this fauxminto, because you won’t be buying a jar of pimentos to make this pimento cheese recipe! I’ve been making this Jalapeño Fauxminto Cheese for a year now, and it’s a family favorite.

This is great to make ahead for when you need a dish to have ready to go. I made it before leaving on a camping trip, and it made mealtime so easy. You could make it at night and have it ready for lunch, or throw it together in the morning to have dinner waiting on you.

Ingredients: 

  • 4 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of chopped jalapeños
  • 1/2 cup of chopped jarred roasted red pepper
  • •3/4 to 1 cup of mayo (depending on how “dry” or “wet” you like your pimento cheese)
  • 1 tsp of Tabasco
  • Bread

Directions: 

  1. Mix all of your wet ingredients together ( Jalapeños, red peppers, mayo, Tabasco) in a bowl. 
  2. In a separate bowl with shredded cheese, add your wet mixture and stir. Try your best not to much the cheese. 
  3. LET IT SIT for at least 8 hours. Trust me— it gets better with time.
  4. Serve: You can make sandwiches or serve it as a dip with crackers.
