I looked at several recipes online which didn't look as spicy as some of you go for (my neighbors would love the hot ones, though).
The combo I ended up with:
1 1/2 lbs grated sharp yellow cheddar (Tillamook)
4 oz cream cheese
3/4 c. mayo
7 oz jar of roasted red peppers
1Tb. grated onion
1 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne
several splashes of Cholula
sprinkles of black pepper
1 Tb cider vinegar
1/2 Tb sugar
Result just now? The level of heat is just right for me and DH, but seems kind of bland, flavor-wise. Was this version too far from what a southerner might really eat? Does it have to be hotter? Do I have to be from the South? Too late, I was born in Iowa.

- I don't think it will do well--the mayo would "break" I think. It keeps well in - Charley - 7:06pm on 07/11/18
