How to Make Roasted Red Pepper Dip
Roasted red pepper dip is honestly insanely easy to make. I got the inspiration from a store-bought Summer’s Best (I think that’s what it was called) roasted red pepper dip that just seemed too easy to make.
The main thing you need is roasted red peppers (obviously). You can find them in most grocery stores either in a can or a jar. Secondly, you need some sort of base. For this recipe, I decided to stick with sour cream to keep it on the lower-fat side. However, many roasted red pepper dips are also made with mayo.
Lastly, you need a few more ingredients listed below and a blender to mix everything together! My biggest suggestion for this recipe is to make sure to pat down your red peppers, so they’re dry. This helps prevent your dip from being too watery.
What to Serve with Roasted Red Pepper Dip?
Naturally, my favourite dipper for roasted red pepper dip is tortilla dips. They are a match made in heaven and keep you coming back for more!
That being said- this dip is also delicious with crackers (Triscuits are a go-to) and, of course, any vegetable you can think of! I liked using the celery since it has a little crevice to get all the dip in.
If you wanted to get fancy, you could also spread this dip on a wrap, add it to taco night, or even add it to a salad. This dip isn’t too overpowering, so you can really add it to whatever you want!
Storage & Stuff
I suggest storing your red pepper dip in the fridge in an air-tight container.
Secondly, your roasted red pepper dip is good for about 5 days, so make sure to use it up before then! Finally, if you find your dip is a bit runny, try letting it sit in the fridge for a few hours or even the next day. It should thicken up!
