Description

Once you start munching on pimento cheese, you can’t stop! Which is why I created this lightened up version, using Greek yogurt in place of cream cheese. You can use non-fat, low-fat, or whole-milk yogurt. You can easily stir this together by hand since it’s made with yogurt instead of cream cheese.


Ingredients

Scale

1 (5.3 ounce) container plain Greek or Icelandic yogurt (about 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon)

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup diced jarred pimentos or roasted red pepper

1/2 jalapeño, seeded and minced (about 2 tablespoons)

1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper


Instructions

Drain off the liquid from the top of the yogurt. If you have a fine strainer, gently scoop the yogurt into the strainer to further drain the liquid while you prep the other ingredients. Add all of the ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and stir. Enjoy right away or chill until ready to serve, up to 5 days. It will thicken as it sits in the refrigerator.

Serve with crackers and raw veggie sticks.
