Someone here was just asking where to purchase olive pimento cheese spread and it jarred my memory that I have a really good recipe for it from years and years ago. Of course, it's not as easy to make as buying a jar; but at least you know what's really in it ;-)


  • 10 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, grated
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup pimiento stuffed olives, coarsely chopped
  • 4 to 8 Tbsp. sour cream (depending on the consistency you want)


Mix first five ingredients well, stir in the 4 tablespoons of sour cream. Add more tablespoons of sour cream if desired.

Pimento Cheese Spread I


  • 2 lbs. Velveeta, cut in 1 1/2 inch cubes
  • 3/4's of a Qt. of Miracle Whip
  • 2-3 pkts. of Splenda
  • black pepper
  • 2 jars Dromedary sliced pimentos (the larger 1/2 cup size)
  • can use chopped pickles or pickle relish (optional)


    Beat with an electric mixer till it reaches the correct consistency (to me that's between small curds and smooth).


    You might like to use less Miracle Whip. I like mine creamy, where it spreads good.

    Good for sandwich spread, or as a dip for fresh veggies, or served with fancy breads and crackers.

    This tip serves two purposes. I designate one day each week to go through my refrigerator to clean out any spoiled food and look for any good leftovers. Once I am finished with this task, I create a new recipe from the leftovers. I will share the recipe I made yesterday. My version of homemade pimento cheese.


    All of these ingredients were odds and ends I found while cleaning the refrigerator. To this I added a couple drops of green pepper sauce, about 1/4 tsp. ground fresh pepper, a pinch of cayenne, and a 1/8 tsp. of onion powder. Mix well and chill before serving. My family loved it. We had sandwiches and soup for dinner. This tasted so much better then the store brand and did not contain all the additives.

    I use to dread cleaning out the refrigerator, but now I actually look forward to the task and creating a leftover recipe for lunch or dinner that day.

    Source: I started doing this about a year ago when I read a tip about keeping your brain active, the suggestion was to designate one day a week to create a new recipe, I believe the tip was in Prevention magazine or Readers Digest, because both have very short articles!
