Pimento cheese...what's your best recipe?

While living in Texas as a teenager, pimento cheese on white bread at the downtown drug store was my go-to lunch. Haven't eaten it in years but now hankering this comfort food all of a sudden. Saw a recipe which included shredded sharp cheddar, roasted red peppers & of course Hellmann's---mix lightly & let hang-out in the fridge for flavors to mingle & meld...sounds good:) What's your best pimento cheese recipe? Since we are also talking healthy & less calorie dense foods...any "light" pimento cheese recipes are also welcome!
