Green Pepper Dip
My sister Mary gave me this recipe a long, long time ago. It’s fast, easy and delicious! When she first rattled off the six ingredients that it takes to make this dip, I remember replying, “Is that it?” and she said, “That’s it!” Shortly after this encounter, I was asked to bring a dip to a party. Well I new what dip I was going to make, Green Pepper Dip immediately came to mind.
Serve this fantastic green pepper dip in mini multi-colored pepper shells for a festive look. This dip can also be served in a large multi-colored bell pepper. Remove the stem end (set aside) and membranes. Spoon the dip into the empty bell pepper , place the top back on and you are good to go. Serve green pepper dip with celery and carrot sticks. Mary likes to serve this dip with green pepper sticks.
One of my favorite ‘dippers’ to serve with green pepper dip are pumpernickel pretzels from Trader Joe’s. In fact, pumpernickel pretzels are great served with so many of our favorite dips. Besides this dip, pumpernickel pretzels are super served with Super Easy Hot Reuben Dip. The pretzels are sturdy enough to stand up to any hearty dip and the pumpernickel flavors is sensational with any dip.
The sauce or base of this dip is a sweet sour style sauce. Butter, white vinegar and white sugar are combined in a saucepan and boiled for 2 minutes. This mixture is then cooled and whipped with the softened cream cheese. Diced onions and green peppers are stirred into the cream cheese mixture and then allowed to sit in the refrigerator 2 to 4 hours or overnight. This gives the mixture time for the flavors to blend together.
This super easy dip is delicious.
