Ingredients
 

  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Shredded) 2 cups
  • Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Shredded) 1 cup
  • Cream Cheese 8 oz
  • Cottage Cheese (Optional) ¾ cup
  • Pimentos 4 tablespoon
  • Mayonnaise 4 tablespoon
  • Chives (Sliced thin into coins) 10
  • Chipotles in Adobo Sauce (Chopped) 2 teaspoon
  • Black Pepper 1 ½ teaspoon
  • Sea Salt 1 teaspoon

Instructions
 

  • Start by hand grating the sharp cheddar & the extra sharp cheddar cheese. The grating of the cheese is so important for the texture. Use a box grater and grate on the side with the large grooves.
  • In another bowl, mix the cottage cheese, room temperature cream cheese, chives, chopped chipotles, black pepper, mayonnaise & sea salt together.
  • Then mix the grated cheese with the other ingredients. Combine, being careful to preserve the grate cheese texture.
  • Once combined nicely, add in the pimentos last. The reason to wait until the last step to add the pimentos is to protect their shape and texture.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerator 12 to 36 hours for flavor development.

Notes

About the Master's Golf Tournament:
The Master's golf tournament is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world. It's also one of the most challenging to win, as only the top golfers in the world are invited to participate. The course at Augusta National is notoriously difficult, with narrow fairways and treacherous greens. Winning the Master's is a true accomplishment, and only a select few have done so. If you're interested in watching some of the best golfers in the world compete for one of the sport's biggest prizes, be sure to tune in to this year's Masters tournament every year first weekend of April! It should be an exciting event to watch.
