Pimento Cheese Spread

I have always loved pimento cheese spread but the store-bought version always had a sickly sweet aftertaste that got more pronounced for me as I ate less and less processed foods.  And then I tasted a friend's home made version and it was pure cheesy pimento goodness without that residual sweetness. I have made it myself ever since.  It is ridiculously easy.  You can even buy the cheeses already shredded.

These days I also make my own mayonnaise, but that does not mean that you have to do the same.
Home Cookin v9.80 Chapter: My Recipes
4 oz shredded Cheddar cheese
4 oz shredded Gruyere cheese
2 oz jar pimentos, with juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
dash of cayenne
1/4 cup mayonnaise, less or more to taste

Mix the cheeses, pimento, Dijon mustard and cayenne together. Add about half of the mayonnaise and stir to combine, then add more as needed to reach desired consistency.
