  • 8 ounces (1 block) cream cheese, at  room temperature (cut into cubes for easier mixing)
  • 2 medium sized pimentos (roasted, skins removed), diced
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp seasoning salt (Hys or Lowrys)

  • salt to taste (see tips above)


  1. In a bowl mix all of the spices and mayonnaise together.
  2. Add the cheddar cheese, cream cheese and peppers.
