PIMENTO CHEESE DEVILED LEGS

1 dozen large hard-boiled eggs, peeled
2 ounces finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup real mayonnaise
½ teaspoon paprika, plus extra for garnish
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 ounces diced pimentos, rinsed and patted dry
Cut your eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolks. Place the yolks in a medium bowl and set your whites aside on a plate.
Mash your egg yolks with a fork, then add your pimentos, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, paprika, garlic powder, and salt and pepper.
Stir your mixture until it's all well-incorporated. Taste and add a little more salt and pepper if needed.
Fill your eggs with the mixture and refrigerate until needed. Right before serving, sprinkle a little more paprika on the eggs. Serve and watch them quickly disappear.
I love deviled eggs!
I've never tried them with pimentos.
