4 Cheese Hot Roasted Red Pepper Dip

4 Cheese Hot Roasted Red Pepper Dip
The markets have been filled with red peppers these past few weeks and I picked up a rather large basket of them for roasting! I like to make my own roasted red peppers because it is so easy, cheap and good! They keep well in the freezer so I freeze a lot of them for use throughout the winter but I could not resist using a few and this roasted red pepper dip has been on my mind for a while now. This dip is really simple hot melted cheese dip that consists of the roasted red peppers along with no less that four kinds of cheese! I went with a small Spanish theme using manchego as one of the cheeses and I included a touch of smoked paprika. You really cannot go wrong with a hot melted cheese dip and the roasted red peppers really make this one shine!

I love roasted red peppers. In fact I have several in my fridge I was going to turn into muhumara --maybe I need to do this outrageous dip instead!

This recipe looks fantastic.
Please can you elaborate on what you do with all your frozen peppers during winter? I'd love some ideas as I love roasted peppers. Didn't even know you could freeze them.
I'm new to the kitchen!!

Could you do this in a crockpot? This would be a great app to take to work over the holiday season.

Kevin Lynch said...

Gilly: Yes this would definitely work in a crockpot!

Do you simply freeze the peppers air-tight after you've roasted and cooled them? And how long do you suppose they'd keep? Thanks!

Kevin Lynch said...

Anonymous: Yes, after the roasted peppers have cooled, seal them up and place them in the freezer where they will keep for months!
