Welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen folks! I’m whipping up my Roasted Red Pepper Spread. This is a simple spread I like to serve on crackers or toasted French bread. Let’s get cooking!
2 roasted red bell peppers, peeled and chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Dash of sea salt
You can use store-bought roasted peppers but, be warned, the flavor doesn’t compare and roasting peppers is super easy! Just wash those peppers, remove seeds, slice in two and place on foil lined cookie sheet. Roast for 20-25 minutes in a 450 degree oven and let them rest for another 30 minutes on the counter and you’ll be ready to remove the skins and get on with the getting on!
Now, we’ll chop up our peppers and set ’em aside. Then we’ll combine a package of softened cream cheese with chopped basil, minced garlic, lime juice. We’ll add this to our peppers and blend it all in a food processor until smooth. That’s it! Chill in fridge for an hour or so to get the flavors to mingle. It’s my Roasted Red Pepper Spread and it’s good eating, from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours~
