Author Notes: Pimento cheese, move over! In our family, Mary’s Jalapeño Cheese dip reigns supreme. This spicy appetizer first appeared at our family’s UGA football tailgates, and it is now a requested appetizer at all family functions. A spin off of traditional pimento cheese, our Aunt Mary (we call her May-ree) usually makes it a couple of days ahead because she says this gives the flavors time to mingle and also allows the heat of the jalapeños to mellow. The only risk of making it before hand is that (in our family at least) if you constantly sneak bites from the container, it may never make it to the party!
