Pimento Cheese - what kind of peppers
What kind of peppers are used in making pimento cheese ? Are they regular jarred roasted peppers or pickled of some kind ?

You can also roast your own red peppers. I make a Spanish version....using piquillo peppers and add some manchego cheese.
I agree that the small jarred pimentos are the right ones to use for the old-fashioned pimento cheese, but if you have sweet (not hot) red roasted bell pepper, chop it very finely and use it. That said, I wouldn't be above experimenting with almost any kind of red pepper, if that's your cup of tea.
