Prep:

15 Min

Method:

Food Processor

Ingredients

3 oz
sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
2 jar(s)
(7-oz. each) roasted red peppers, drained
2 clove
garlic, chopped fine
1 1/2 tsp
ground cumin
1 tsp
fresh lemon juice
1/4 c
chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 c
chopped green onion
4 oz
neufchatel cream cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
tabasco or hot pepper sauce, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Soak dried tomatoes in hot water for 5 minutes. Drain well, reserving 3 tablespoons of the soaking liquid.
2
In a food processor, puree red peppers, tomatoes, garlic, cumin, lemon juice, cilantro and scallion until smooth and well-blended. Add cream cheese and puree, adding enough of the reserved tomato-soaking liquid to thin the dip to the desired consistency (scraping down the side of the bowl occasionally). Blend until smooth. Blend in salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste. Adjust seasoning, adding more garlic, cumin, or lemon juice if needed.
3
Transfer to a container with a cover. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours before using. Bring dip to room temperature before serving.
