Use diced jalapenos and pimentos in it, as well as a blend of cheddar and jack cheese too. Sorta like so:
One jalapeno adds a pleasant tang and bite; chile lovers may want to use two. If the pimentos or the roasted red bell peppers are mild, use the larger amount.
1 pound sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
4 to 6 ounces jarred pimentos, drained and chopped, or 1/2 to 3/4 chopped roasted red bell peppers
1/2 cup good-quality mayonnaise
1/4 cup minced green onions (optional)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 pickled or fresh jalapeno (seeded if desired), minced, or more to taste
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix very thoroughly. For best results, cover and chill overnight to allow flavors to blend.
I like mine on toast too.
