We love cheese, and we love dips. So there’s no question that we’ve fallen for this pimento cheese recipe, courtesy of James Beard award-winning pitmaster Rodney Scott and his new cookbook, Rodney Scott’s World of BBQ: Every Day Is a Good Day.
“Pimento cheese is one of those foods that everyone associates with the South,” he writes. “The South isn’t the only place where people thought of putting pimiento peppers and cheese together. But the South is the only place where the dish became so legendary.”
The extra step of shredding the cheese might seem inconvenient, but as Scott explains, it’s worth the time and effort. Pre-shredded cheese contains added ingredients to prevent clumping, and “only freshly grated cheese will give you the creamy result you’re looking for.”
Serve this spicy appetizer with carrots, celery stalks, crackers or, as Scott suggests, pork rinds for dipping.
