Sriracha Pimento Cheese Spread

This Sriracha Pimento Cheese Spread is a rich, smoky, spicy spread with just a hint of sweetness from roasted red peppers! 
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Total Cost: $4.31 recipe / $0.72 serving
Servings: 6 1/2 cup each

Ingredients

  • 8 oz extra sharp cheddar, shredded* $1.77
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature $0.60
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise $0.56
  • 3 Tbsp sriracha (or to taste) $0.27
  • 1 cup diced roasted red peppers $1.00
  • 1 green onion $0.11

Instructions

  • Add the shredded cheddar, cream cheese, mayonnaise, and 1 Tbsp sriracha to a large bowl.
  • Finely dice the roasted red peppers and finely chop the green onion. Add both to the bowl with the other ingredients. Use a hand mixer to combine the mixture until the cream cheese is well incorporated (the mixture will still be lumpy because of the shredded cheese and diced peppers).
  • Taste the mixture and add more sriracha to your liking. I added a total of 3 Tbsp sriracha. Keep in mind that the spiciness will increase slightly as the mixture refrigerates.
  • Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to eat. The mixture will keep in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.

Notes

*I highly suggest shredding your own cheese for this instead of buying pre-shredded. The starchy coating on pre-shredded cheese will prevent the cheese from combining properly in the spread.
