Great Pimento Cheese

I guarantee this will be the best pimento cheese you have ever tasted. You should cover it and refrigerate for a few hours to let it set up, but I usually can’t wait that long to eat it!

Original recipe makes 4 cups


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup grated white onion
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
