Grilled cheese sandwiches are ALWAYS a good idea, and this smoky, super melty pimento grilled cheese is made with easy pantry ingredients and our bold, creamy Chipotle Havarti.

Recipe by: Bev Weidner, Bev Cooks


  • 2 (6-oz) blocks Roth Chipotle Havarti cheese, grated
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 level tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 chipotle pepper (canned in adobo sauce), plus 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 4 ounces drained pimentos
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 hamburger pickles
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons butter
  • 12 slices bread


  1. Combine grated cheese, cream cheese, mayonnaise, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, pimentos, garlic and pickles in a food processor and give it a few pulses. You’re looking for a nice chunky texture for the pimento cheese. Don’t over pulse or the mixture will turn to mush.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a wide skillet. Spoon pimento cheese on one slice of bread and top with another slice. Place sandwiches in hot butter, and sear each sandwich for 1 to 2 minutes — long enough to brown the bread and get the cheese barely softened. Flip and sear another minute. Cook sandwiches in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan and adding more butter, when needed.
  3. Transfer sandwiches to a plate and let them cool about a minute. Slice in half and serve!
