I don’t foxhunt anymore, but I do volunteer with Aiken Hounds. I usually help with Opening Meet (Thanksgiving), Hunt Ball (this year was on Valentine's Day), hunt breakfasts, as well as the Aiken Horse Show in the Woods. This pimento cheese and peppers recipe is from my friend Virginia Willis. It is one that I like to bring to tailgates, as it is easy to make, travels well, and everyone loves them! The pimento cheese makes a wonderful grilled cheese — IF you have leftovers!

Pimento cheese:

2 cups shredded cheddar
1/4-1/2 cup mayo
1/4 grated sweet onion
1 -2 small jars diced pimentos, drained
Dash of hot sauce of your choice
Salt and pepper to taste
Peppadew peppers (Can be found on the olive bar at the grocery store; they are sweet, not spicy. The good news is that they are already hollowed out!) or cherry tomatoes.

Mix all ingredients listed above in a medium sized bowl and stuff the mixture into hallowed out peppadew peppers or cherry tomatoes. 

Volia! Bite sized snacks with a kick!
