How to make Southern buffalo pimiento cheese

Print this recipe
You can’t get through a Southern garden party without indulging in pimiento cheese. It’s a classic blend of cheddar cheese, mayonnaise and chopped pimientos — and it’s ubiquitous in the South. For such a simple spread, pimiento cheese is surprisingly delicious. The recipe below takes it a step further, adding hot wing sauce to kick up the flavor even more.
Serve this spread the way most Southerners do — spread on white bread as a simple sandwich or as a party dip with crackers. You can even use it to top a juicy burger or a baked potato. I like to serve it with celery sticks for scooping, which strengthens the flavor connection to my favorite hot wings even further.
