Yum, this dip is quite tasty. It's sweet, savory and smoky. The marmalade and balsamic reduction give the dip a sweet and unique flavor. We loved the smokiness from the Gouda and bacon. Bell peppers add a crisp bite to the dip. Serving with buttery crackers is perfect. They add a nice saltiness that complements the dip really well. But try this with your favorite dippers.

How to Make Sweet and Tangy Pepper Spread

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat cream cheese and marmalade together with a hand mixer until well blended.
  2. Stir in meat, cheese, and balsamic reduction. Set aside.
  3. Cut off the tops of the peppers. Remove seeds and pith to make four “bowls.” Reserve the three small tops as “lids.”
  4. Finely chop the large pepper top.
  5. Stir into the cream cheese mixture.
  6. Fill pepper “bowls” with the mixture. Chill until ready to serve. Serve with crackers or chips.
  7. NOTE: If you like more chunks of peppers in your spread, just chop all of the pepper tops instead of keeping the small ones intact as "lids."
