Skinny Pimento Cheese

Submitted by: LOVEBYRD

Introduction

This is my take on the Southern Pimento Cheese recipe on AllRecipes. I used lower fat cheeses and a cut way down on the mayo, subbing it with fat free Greek yogurt. Dh & I both loved the results so much, next time I plan to omit the mayo completely. This is my take on the Southern Pimento Cheese recipe on AllRecipes.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 cups (about 4oz) shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
    8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    2 tbsp mayonnaise
    .35 cup Fat free Greek yogurt
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (optional)
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
    1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimento, drained
    salt and black pepper to taste

Tips

I prefer my pimento cheese warmed, so I made a sandwich on a whole wheat hoagie and warmed it in the oven on 275 for about 5-7 minutes.


Directions

Mash the pimento with a fork to a smooth consistency so it will mix better.
Place the Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, minced jalapeno, and pimento into the large bowl of a mixer. Beat at medium speed until thoroughly combined.
