I’m going to go ahead and warn you, this recipe for Skinny Jalapeno Pimento Cheese is addicting!

I grew up in North Carolina where pimento cheese is a delicacy. The creamy goodness of cheese and pimentos tastes so much better in the south. Now that we’re living in Alaska I’ve learned that if I want to eat my favorite southern foods, I have to cook them myself.

Normally pimento cheese is made with mayonnaise, but I prefer to make a skinnier version. Even though this recipe has fewer calories and fat, it has added spice with jalapenos and cayenne pepper. Whether you’re craving a creamy pimento cheese sandwich or a dip with a kick, then you must try this Skinny Jalapeno Pimento Cheese recipe!

My husband and I both LOVE spicy foods. This Skinny Jalapeno Pimento Cheese recipe definitely has a spicy kick to it. But we both suffer from occasional heartburn. And do you know what’s worse than heartburn?  Heartburn with sleeplessness! As a Mom to a toddler, I can’t afford to lose out on sleep which is why I’m so glad Alka-Seltzer® PM Gummies can step in when my love for spicy foods gets the best of me.

When I get the occasional case of heartburn at night now, I just take Alka-Seltzer® PM Gummies for fast heartburn relief. It goes to work in seconds! There is even melatonin added to help with occasional sleeplessness. I normally lose sleep when I have heartburn at night, so I always keep Alka-Seltzer®  on standby in my medicine cabinet.

If you suffer from occasional heartburn with sleeplessness when you eat spicy foods, like I do, you’ll definitely want to pick up Alka-Seltzer® PM Gummies from your local Walmart.
