Smoky Pecan Pimento Cheese

56

A Southern staple, you'll see Pimento Cheese prepared in almost every variation possible. It goes with ease from the simplest lunch table to the most elegant party. This smoky version is creamy, savory, and just a tiny bit spicy. It's great as an appetizer or in a grilled sandwich!

12
16 oz. block (ungrated) cheddar cheese (I used 8 oz. mild, 8 oz. medium)
Generous 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 cup real mayonnaise
1 small (2 oz.) jar chopped pimentos, drained
3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/8 teaspoon sugar
salt and pepper to taste (I don't add any salt; the cheese and mayo are pretty salty)
1. Grate cheese into a large bowl, then add pecans. Set aside. 2. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise and all the rest of the ingredients until very well combined. 3. Stir mayonnaise mixture into cheese...
