Shred Your Cheese


You can easily shred your cheese in a food processor or even with a box grater, but I definitely recommend shredding your own cheese instead of using store-bought shredded cheese.



Once I shred my cheese, I then mix in my softened cream cheese until well combined.


Once I have my cheeses well combined, I then stir in the remaining ingredients: pimentos, salt and pepper, and any mayonnaise or Greek yogurt that I may be using.


You can also include other spices and seasonings if you prefer. Garlic powder, onion powder, a pinch of cayenne pepper, or even a couple of dashes of hot sauce.
