Pimento Cheddar Cheese Spread......

Here is another cheese spread to help drop those ugly pounds that crept up during the winter months. You can still enjoy the flavor without all the extra calories. No one will know you took out some of the calories. But as with any food, don't over indulge.
Pimento Cheddar Cheese Spread
1 cup reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup reduced fat cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup fat free cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup fat free mayonnaise
1 4-ounce jar sliced pimientos, drained and chopped
2 tbsp red onion, grated
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
Dash of pepper
Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheeses until smooth and fluffy. Add all of the remaining ingredients and beat until well blended. Entire recipe is 12 servings
Remember, as with any spread, you can add what you want to it. Fresh parsley would be a nice addition and add some additional color to the spread.
Till next time.....
