Easy Holiday Dip
1 ½ cups roasted red peppers (from jar or canned)
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
1 Tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon paprika (I like smoked but any will do)
Salt and pepper to taste
Put everything into a food processor and pulse until smooth, creamy and delicious.
Serve with fresh-cut veggies (carrot sticks, celery, you know the drill folks) pretzels or pita chips.
For you chile heads, add a couple drops of your favorite Dave’s Gourmet hot sauce and make that dip rip!
