Carlie's Pimento Cheese

Carlie Jean loves pimento cheese... not the kind you buy in a tub at the grocery store, but homemade, yummy, creamy pimento cheese. I am one that didn't want to eat the orange stuff from the store either, it was far from appealing to me. Now that we make our own though, it is a different story.
We made some together for a Christmas get-together, here's how we made our version.

4-5 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 block of cream cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 jar of pimentos
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp onion powder

Mix vigorously in your mixer, but I also was thinking that it would be a good thought to use the food processor too. That might give it a smoother texture if you like that. We kinda like it this way. 
Grab some slices of good bread, or some crackers, some veggie sticks, or a pita and have a yummy lunch or snack!
