Sun-Dried Tomato Cheese Spread

By Sherri Leigh Wear

2 cups finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese

5 – 6 sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil

2 Tbs. Vidalia onion relish or 1 TB grated sweet onion

4 slices pickled jalapenos (Notice this says SLICES, not whole peppers)

¼ tsp ground cayenne pepper

½ to 1 tsp garlic salt

1 TB sugar or 1 packet of sweetener

½ cup Miracle Whip Light or other mayo (more if you want creamier spread)

¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Salt to taste

 Use a small food processor to shred cheese to desired consistency.  Place cheese in a bowl.  To a small food processor, add sun-dried tomatoes, onion relish, and jalapenos.  Grind to a very fine consistency.  If needed, add a little of the oil from the tomatoes to the processor for a smoother consistency.  Add the tomato puree to the cheese.  Add cayenne pepper, garlic salt, sugar, Miracle Whip, black pepper, and salt to the cheese and tomato puree and stir until it is combined.  Add more mayo as needed.
