Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Spread & Link Party
This quick, easy Roasted Red Pepper Dip is not only fantastic for dipping chips and veggies, it’s a zingy red pepper spread for bagels, toast, and sandwiches.
So, apparently I have a thing for red peppers. While writing out this recipe, I became blatantly aware of how many red pepper recipes I have on my site.
Let’s see, there’s: Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup, Spicy Feta Dip with Roasted Red Peppers, Pollo Rojo, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Beer Chili with Red Bell Peppers, Stuffed Poblanos with Red Pepper Puree, Peach Chipotle Salsa, Grilled Fattoush, Strawberry Chipotle Jam and a handful of others.
So I like red peppers of all varieties, no big deal. I can stop anytime I want…
This little snack started with a bag of bagels. I had bagels, I had cream cheese, but something was missing. What could possible make cream cheese even better? You guessed it–roasted reds, baby! A puree of cheese, roasted red peppers and spice makes a tangy red pepper spread that begs to be slathered over bread and veggies. It transforms a plain turkey sandwich into something AMAZING.
