Red Pepper, Basil, Cilantro Dip

30 Aug

Red Pepper, Basil, & Cilantro Dip

If you love red peppers and basil, this recipe will make its way to the top of your fave list. Its super easy and is a crowd pleaser.

1 Jar 16 oz. roasted red bell peppers packed in water, drained.

1 Cup fat-free sour cream (or full fat for richer flavor)

½ Cup Fresh Basil… I always go a little over with basil

½ tsp garlic powder

1/2 cup cilantro

Pepper and salt to taste.

Toss all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. I like to chill mine before serving. Serve with naked pita chips or with your favorite bread. I like to serve mine with roasted garlic and olive bread or with rosemary sour dough bread.

This recipe is ideal for summer outside barbeques and goes wonderfully with Italian main dishes.

Bon appetit!
