Pimento Cheese Spread

This red-orange hue colorful mixture is perfect to make and store in the fridge for awhile.  I use it for quick lunches or as a cracker spread for snacks and if I have guests over.  The flavor components include: garlic, peppers, and creamy cream cheese!  It’s definitely my go-to quick meal.

Pimento Cheese Spread

Makes about 2 cups, a pint jar full

Ingredients:
3 TB pimentos
1/4 cup plain yogurt
4 oz Neufchâtel cream cheese
2 cups mozzarella
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Directions:
Stir the pimentos and yogurt or puree them till smooth
Mix the cream cheese and mozzarella, you can also use a different cheese or a couple different ones.
Add the pimento mixture to the cream cheese and mozz
Finally add the salt, pepper, and garlic powder

*I like to use all mozzarella to cut back on the fat and blend the pimentos so they aren’t chunky
