El Guapo Pimento Cheese

  • 16 oz Sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 8 oz Softened cream cheese
  • .25 c. Diced pimentos
  • .5 tsp. Sea salt
  • .25 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. El Guapo® Crawfish Boil bitters

In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream together the cheddar and cream cheese until well combined. Stir in pimentos, salt, pepper and bitters. Add additional spices and bitters to taste. Pimento cheese can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.

Coffee Scented Whipped Cream

There’s nothing better than homemade whipped cream for dipping fruit or topping holiday pies. Our recipe utilizes our coffee bitters for an additional hint of flavor that will have your guests asking for seconds.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large mixing bowl if you’re using a hand-held mixer, combine cream, powdered sugar and bitters. Mix, starting at low speed, gradually increasing to medium-high until stiff peaks have formed. Yields approximately 2 cups of whipped cream.

Helpful Tip: Freeze your mixing bowl and beaters for 10-15 minutes prior to mixing. The chill will create stiffer peaks and help the finished cream stay set.
