Spicy Pimento Cheese Dip Appetizer Recipe

Have you all ever tried Spicy Jalapeno Pimento Cheese Dip? Well if you haven’t then you are in for something great!

My husband fell in love with this dip at one of our favorite restaurants. It seemed so simple to recreate at home.

When we first started making it we used the premade jalapeno pimento cheese spread brand called Pawley Island and just added a dash of cayenne pepper.

Since we have moved to the west coast we can not find the Pawley Island brand in any of the stores. So we went on a quest to make the perfect recipe for this dip!

We finally perfected the jalapeno pimento cheese recipe and our dip is even better than before. Why do you ask? Well, because we are using fresh ingredients and it’s made from scratch.

  2. Wow, this look yummy and so easy. My husband would be mad for this. Thanks for sharing. Visiting from Merry Monday.

  3. Stephanie R says:

    This is such a good idea, I bet this tastes amazing. I need to try make this for my husband because he has never had pimento cheese and this is probably a way that he would love it!

    1. You should get him to try it! This is hands down my husbands fav appetizer! The hotter the better for him. :)

  4. This sounds so yummy! Although I probably wouldn’t add the cayenne pepper because I’m a wimp when it comes to spicy food. ;) But this would make a great and easy dip to bring to a get together!

    1. Ha, I’m a whimp too but if you only put a little it doesn’t pack much heat, but ads a great flavor. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. This is amazing! What a yummy recipe! I would love for you to share this at my link party Making Memories Mondays going on now! :-)
