Chipotle Pimento Cheese

Spicy Chipotle Pimento Cheese

Pimento cheese marks the beginning of warmer weather for us down here in the south. And what better way than to make it using cheese from NC based Ashe County Cheese found at the NC State Farmers’ Market. Pimento cheese tastes great as grilled cheese sandwiches, served as a burger topping or simply served with crackers and veggies.  There’s so many options so have fun exploring them all.
