Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Dip

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…

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Dip

This Roasted Red Pepper Dip started out 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 tangyRoasted Red Pepper Dip that begs to be slathered over bread and veggies. It transforms a plain turkey sandwich into something AMAZING.

  5. What a great blend of wonderful flavors, sweet, spicy, smoky, all in a nice creamy dip. I will have to try this at my next party! As always, lovely photos.

  6. Thank you for this recipe – it is exactly what I was looking for to use as a spread on sandwiches. Today, my husband is taking a chicken sandwich to work that has this spread and thin-sliced cucumbers on it. I’m thinking this might also be good mixed into a pasta dish. I did add some mild Peppadews to the puree in order to give it just a hint of sweetness. Yum!

  7. Love this dip idea & fun to put it on bagels too!

  8. This looks great and I plan to use it for an Oscar party I am hosting. Thanks!

  9. This spread looks and sounds delish. I’m filing this in the to-make. I usually buy red pepper hummus, but I’m loving the cream cheese factor vs the grabanzo bean base.

  10. It looks FANTASTIC! i’m a HUGE fan of roasted peppers….not green – RED, YELLOW or ORANGE! YUM! Thanks for sharing and Happy Valentines Day!

  11. Wow..you bowled me out with those red pepper recipes, Sommer….need to check each one out!

  12. You definitely have a thing for red bell peppers. That is ok. I have a thing for chile peppers.

    BTW, we just bought our first bag of Udi’s Bagels. Haven’t tried them yet. Will Friday morning. My son’s allergist suggested that we start getting gluten out of his life so I bought a package the other day. Can’t wait for him to try them. Glad for a good review. They are expensive, that is for sure.

    Thanks for the Udi’s Community link.

  13. Yum! This looks so wonderful! And, of course, the pepper heart is adorable :)

  14. I wish I had picked up some bell peppers today…the dip looks great!

  15. Oh that looks so, so delicious! Love the little pepper heart, too! :)

  16. Can’t wait to make this – I love roasted red peppers! Sounds like the perfect spread for toast or to dip my favorite veggies in.

  17. Slice of whole grain bread, schmear of this dip, handful of mixed greens and sprouts, a couple of cucumber and tomato slices … pretty good sandwich, yeah?

  18. What a great dip. Happy Valentine Day!

  19. This as the base for a veggie bagel sandwich? Oh my word YES!

  20. I love dips that are made from roasted red pepper. This is a recipe you can use anytime of year regardless of holidays or seasons. It’s a perfect dip for chips, bagels, and vegetable fritters.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  21. I’m totally with you on the red pepper thing…I just love them roasted. My husband actually hates roasted red pepps and I can’t – for the life of me – figure out what’s wrong with his tastebuds!

  22. I love that your dip is a savoury Valentine’s Day treat. I have a salty tooth rather than a sweet tooth, so the real indulgences and treats in my book are the savoury ones. Thank you for something gorgeous and new to try!!!

  23. What a delicious spread and so easy to make!

  24. That link up widgit is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! Wow!

    I accidentally put ‘Dessert For Two’ instead of the name of my pancakes, which should be ‘Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Pancakes’. oops, sorry.

    Happy V-Day! :)

  25. Of all the things to love you’ve picked quite a healthy option! Love a good dip I can munch on with veggies during the day.
