Skinny Pimento Cheese Spread

Skinny Pimento Cheese Spread
Next time you are in the grocery store, pick up a container of Pimento Cheese Spread and count the number of ingredients.  My count was 36 ingredients, half of which I had never heard of.  Scary!  I loved this sandwich spread as a kid but now know the commercially made kind is full of fat and other unhealthy ingredients. This recipe is low calorie, low fat and still has the yummy cheese spread taste.
