1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 Tablespoon horseradish
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped

Stir together all ingredients except roasted red peppers (mixture will be thick and a bit hard to stir). Put half into a food processor or blender, and mix until mostly smooth. Add pureed mixture back into bowl with the original mixture, and stir together by hand.

Add roasted red peppers, and mix together. Serve immediately, or chill.
