Kitchen Story: Sweet Pepper Dip
My local grocery store had bags of sweet peppers on sale so I bought a bunch. But I may have gone slightly overboard in my purchase and had a bunch of sweet peppers that we could not possibly finish. Luckily, I just happened to come across this delicious dip recipe using sweet peppers and simple everyday ingredients on Pinterest. It is delicious with vegetables or chips! I hope you try this :)
Adapted from Wonky Wonderful. Serves 24.
About 20 sweet mini peppers
2 teaspoons honey
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
16 oz reduced fat cream cheese - softened (leave out for an hour before)
3/4 cup greek yogurt
Pinch of salt or pepper to taste
Remove the seeds from the sweet peppers (I sliced my peppers in smaller pieces to quicken the food processing, but you can just cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds).
Combine sweet peppers, honey and lemon juice in a food processor. Process into small pieces.
Add cream cheese, greek yogurt, and the salt and/or pepper to food processor and process just until well combined.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the dip to harden.
Then dip chips or vegetables! This is how I served the dip. YUM.
