Can you Freeze Pimento Cheese (How to)
Can you freeze Pimento cheese? Yes, you can; I've tried it, I found that the texture wasn't so good, learn what happened when I froze it.

Transfer the cheese into some plastic food wrap and tighten the package as much as you can. Wrap around with foil to tighten more; it will help to retain some of the cheese’s texture, but not 100%.
Place the wrapped cheese into another airtight container or heavy-duty Ziploc bag.
Seal, label, and date. Store for up to three months in the freezer.
Please be warned that the texture will not be as good as when it was fresh.
That’s just the way it is. Whereas once the texture was smooth and creamy, it will become drier and a little grainy after freezing.
Once frozen and defrosted, I recommend using it in a recipe and other ingredients to disguise its texture.
The taste, though not as good as when fresh, should still be okay.
Another possibility is to blend and use it as a dip. If you do, add a little water for smoothness.
