  • 1 cloves - garlic, peeled
  • 1 - small jalapeno or serrano chile, stemmed, seeded and cut in 4 to 5 pieces
  • 3/4 cups - mayonnaise
  • 5 ounces - grated smoked Gouda cheese
  • 4 ounces - grated cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces - grated Havarti cheese, see note
  • 1/3 cups - sour cream
  • 1/3 cups - chopped pimentos
  • - several sprigs fresh parsley or cilantro, optional
  • Directions:

    Using a food processor fitted with the metal blade, start the machine and drop the garlic and jalapeno through the feed tube to process. Add mayonnaise, Gouda and grated cheeses to the food processor and pulse to mix in.

    Add sour cream, pimentos and herbs, if using, and pulse again to mix.

    (If you do not have a food processor, use your blender to mince garlic, jalapeno and herbs, if using. Then transfer mixture to a bowl and combine with remaining ingredients.)
