Warm Pimento Cheese Dip

This dip recipe comes courtesy of the Tupelo Honey Cafe' Cookbook.  It is a favorite appetizer from their restaurant in Asheville, NC.  We happened to vacation in the area recently and ate in their South Asheville location.  With football season upon us, dips are ever popular.  I made half this recipe and my hubby and I ate the entire thing.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips.   Here's the whole recipe:

8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 T. Dijon mustard
1 T. stone-ground mustard
1 t. mustard powder
1/4 t. sea salt
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
2 T. minced fresh parsley
1/2 cup finely diced roasted red bell pepper

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl,  Transfer to a microwaveable dish and microwave for about 20 seconds or  until hot.  You can also put in a baking  dish and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until heated through.  Serve with tortilla chips.

Makes 2 cups

  10. Kitty~ We were in Asheville with some friends and ate at Tulepo Honey not that long ago! I picked up their cookbook coming in and going out and putting it back regretfully since I'm running out of shelf space!

  18. Hi Kitty,
    What Texan doesn't like Pimento Cheese and to warm it up and make it into a dip is just fabulous! This will be a perfect ballgame addition to the food tray. Hope you are having a fabulous day and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  19. I can eat a huge bag of nachos with this dip! Truly, everything is better with cheese and a little kick of chili. This is definitely something you can do with your almighty microwave oven. Ha! This is a great dip for Super Bowl weekends! :)
