Homemade Pimento Cheese Dip

Today’s homemade pimento cheese dip recipe has been on my “to make” list for awhile, and one I thought would be annoyingly complicated. Boy was I wrong! Homemade pimento cheese dip is probably one of the easiest, yummiest dips I’ve made and will absolutely be a staple for potlucks, BBQs, watching sports, etc. It’s so versatile, seasonless, and is the best thing to put on burgers. I mean, something you can eat with chips/crackers as an app and then spread on top of any kind of sandwich? Yes, please!!
