Festive Bell Pepper Dip

This Bell Pepper Dip serves up to 10 as an appetizer; serve with crackers or fresh veggies.


  • 3-4 red bell peppers, roasted, peeled, seeded and cubed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Chopped herbs for garnish
  • 1 package cream cheese, at room temperature


Combine the water, sugar, vinegar and salt in a medium pan and bring to a simmer until the sugar has dissolved.

Add the diced peppers and continue simmering, uncovered, until the peppers look almost translucent and bright red. This will take about 30 minutes.

Remove from heat and allow the mixture to come to room temperature.

Place cream cheese in the center of a platter and pour the bell pepper mixture around. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and serve with crackers
