Santa Fe Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Santa Fe Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Football season is upon us, and game day food is a must.  I have a super quick dip for you that will knock your socks off.  Roasted red peppers with cumin and a hint of cilantro for a new twist on the classic Tex-Mex dip flavors.  This would also be a great addition to tacos and I’m thinking of trying it with grilled chicken.  Many possibilities!

I am still running in circles, but I have some exciting things coming up in the next few weeks along with some great giveaways!

I was chosen to be part of Emeril’s One-Pot Blogger Cooking Party to to celebrate the release of Emeril Lagasse’s upcoming book Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders.

Check out the other participants here, and be looking forward to some awesome food!  In the meantime here’s a recipe from my kitchen that I know you will enjoy!
