  • 12 ounces extra-sharp yellow or white cheddar, coarsely grated, room temperature
  • 1 (4-ounce) jar diced pimentos, well-drained
  • 1/2 cup Blue Plate® Mayonnaise or more to taste

  • 2 teaspoons finely minced fresh jalapeño
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet Spanish paprika
