AB Chao’s Pimento Dip

AB Chao's Pimento Dip

You know AB Chao, of course you do.
She’s our bite-sized Southern style maven.
She makes rooms sing and beauty happen wherever she goes.
Plus, she’s funny as heck.

AB helped me out with our last bocce game theme, “Southern food.”
See, I was stuck. Malcolm had called fried chicken, EMartin had called macaroni and cheese and KBalls’ fried green tomato club sandwich, well, who can top that?
I had no other Southern foods in my wheel house!

Anna Beth sent her Pimento Dip recipe.
I doubled it, for the next day’s porch party.
And it was a huge hit.
Both times.

And, on the day after bocce, my picky husband was spotted, scooping this dip into an omelette.
It’s that good.

AB Chao’s Pimento Dip Recipe

2 cups shredded cheddar
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (or until the dip gets to the right dip consistency [dipsistency?])
1 jar pimentos, drained
1 jalapeno, seeded and rib removed, chopped fine
1/2 teaspoon salt

Stir all of the ingredients in a bowl until they’re well-combined. You will need to continue to stir, after you think you’re done, until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.

Scoop smoothly into a flat serving bowl.
Your guests will flip out.

Thanks AB!
Fool proof and fancy free, the way I like it.
