Pimento Cheese

This is a recipe I created while working at a local coffee shop.  Since I do not eat mayo, there were people who would taste these recipes to give me ideas on what to add or take away.  After much tweaking, here is the end result.  Enjoy!

4 c. finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 c. mayo (I use Kraft)
2 jars pimentos
1/2 T. salt
1/2 T. pepper
1/2 T garlic powder

Using a glove, mix all ingredients well with your hand.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  Eat on bread as a sandwich or with crackers as a dip.  Makes 2 lbs.
