There is common agreement that the pimento cheese should not be a puree. But there are differences as to how much mixing and mashing should go on. Some favor a gentle tossing while other seem to advocate a more thorough combination.
In some recipes, only yellow cheddar cheese is used. Other recipes call for a mixture of white and yellow cheeses. In some cases cream cheese is called for as well. A key point of debate is on the mayonnaise. Some authors strongly advocate home-made mayonnaise. Others argue that only Hellmann's should be used.

Pimento cheese is often made with Jalapeño pepper. It is called Jalapeño Pimento Cheese or Pepper Cheese.
