1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup plain, vanilla, or Greek yogurt
1/8 tsp garlic powder (optional)
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, softened
1 (4 oz.) jar diced pimentos, drained
Beat cream cheese, yogurt, and garlic powder until creamy. Add cheese and mix until slightly lumpy. Mix in pimentos. Chill.
To make a cheese ball, roll chilled pimento cheese into a bowl, and then coat in shredded pecans. Serve with chips or crackers.
