Pimento cheese and scallion dip

This is a sponsored post by Challenge, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible! 

I love snacking on chips and dip while watching a big sporting event. And the NCAA tournament is definitely my favorite sporting event each year. That’s why I thought it would be fun to make my chip dip look like a basketball. My first thought was to make a pimento cheese dip because it’s already orange like a basketball, and anything with cheddar cheese and cream cheese will obviously be delicious.

Pimento cheese is a staple in the south. At its simplest form, it consists of cheddar cheese, pimento peppers, and either cream cheese or mayo or a combination of the two. It’s creamy, tangy, a little sweet, and obviously, cheesy. It’s often used as a dip or a sandwich spread.

Many people in the south have very strong opinions on what ingredients should go into “authentic” pimento cheese spread. But the reality is the best pimento cheese dip is what you think is tastiest. That’s why I encourage everyone to continuously taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.

This recipe uses a lot of cheese. It is cheese dip, after all. It is very important to only use block cheese that you shred yourself. Shredded cheese is certainly convenient, but most shredded cheese contains additives like potato starch, natamycin, and powdered cellulose. The additives prevent shredded cheese from clumping in bags, but they can also affect the taste and texture. You can easily shred cheese with a box grater or the grater attachment on a food processor.

When choosing the cheese for this dip, make sure to buy extra sharp cheddar cheese because we want the cheddar flavor to shine above everything else.

Not every pimento cheese dip has cream cheese, but I prefer the texture of the dip with cream cheese. Also, I think it enhances the flavor of the cheddar along with providing an additional tangy element. I only use Challenge cream cheese when I’m cooking and baking. Challenge cream cheese is made with real milk, cream, and other natural ingredients. You can definitely taste a difference.

The last thing I want to address is the pimento peppers. They are not the same as red bell peppers. Pimentos are small, heart-shaped peppers with subtle sweetness. You can buy them  diced in jars at your local grocery store. I’ve typically found them near the olives or in the canned vegetable section.

  1. My biggest thanks goes to REMOTE REPAIR CREDIT SERVICES for bringing me out of shame. I'm a mother of 3 kids,I lost my husband 2years ago. He left me and my kids with a lot of debts, student loans, medical bills, tax liens and evictions. The little business I was managing to help my family with was going down, so I called my sister who lives in North Carolina, she introduced me to this Credit Specialist. He did a wonderful job on my credit report. I was amazed when I saw how everything reflected on my profile perfectly. He wiped out the bad items off my report and also loaded my account with $18,000. I got a high score of 786 with a good credit limit. This is all I can say about him compared to other good reviews I read about him on the internet. I will also refer him to anyone out there who is in need of his services. Kindly contact him on REMOTE REPAIR at CLERK dot COM

  2. I tried getting a car loan some times last year but my credit score ruined the process. I resorted to doing research online on how I could fix my score because I really needed the car that period because of my new job. I bumped into a website “hacksandrecovery dot net” after many searches and I contacted the admin explaining my credit situation. They requested my info and necessary details and they were able to fix my score in under 5 days, I was amazed, they are fast and reliable.

    thousand percent profit after a month. Reluctantly I invested $3000 at
    first, and later increased it to $20,000 after a week of seeing my
    profit grow. Surprisingly after I decided to withdraw my profit,to my
    surprise I was unable to withdraw,i tried reaching the website
    administrator,i was then asked to invest more money if I wanted to
    withdraw,at that point I knew I had been scammed. I immediately went
    online to search if it is possible to recover a lost bitcoin lost to

  10. Bouncing Back From Bankruptcy!!!
    Bouncing back from bankruptcy can be a bit dicey! I filed chapter 7 a year ago, my assets were liquidated and used to settle most of my debts, while most of the remaining debts were discharged. I found out to my dismay that my credit score had dropped drastically. I tried almost every card company but didn’t get approved, some interest rate were so outrageous that I had to decline. I was practically living from hand to mouth. A neighbor of mine recommended METRONET CREDIT SOLUTION a credit specialist who had helped him in the past. I contacted them and they helped me remove all the negatives from my credit report (including bankruptcy)! And raised my credit score to 700s across all three bureaus and also gave me guidelines to maintain my credit score. I’m so happy and grateful to them for this great help. I’m recommending their services as promised to anyone in need of credit related assistance. You can reach them via METRONETCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM or Whatsapp: +16265140620.

    had shared about CYBER RETRIEVE. I was astounded that such a recovery can be accomplished in a matter of days. I gave them all the documentation they sought.
