Tried and True: Roasted Red Pepper Dip

When I was asked to try the new Veggie Snacks from Green Giant, I knew I had to come up with a killer dip that would compliment their flavors. Chips on their own are great but chips with dip – even better.

These Green Giant Veggie Snacks are so full of flavor and are a new favorite around the house. Plus – you know how I am about labels that I need a dictionary to decipher – thankfully, these chips don’t need Sheldon Cooper to translate. Final determination – these Green Giant Veggie Snacks will be taking place of the chip that starts with a “D” that has been evicted from my pantry permanently.

I was sent the Roasted Vegetable Tortilla Chips and the Barbecue Mulitgrain Chips so to go with these chips, I decided to play on the roasted veggie flavor and made a spicy sweet Roasted Red Pepper Dip. To cut down on the calories – I took a page from Shaina’s book and subbed most of the sour cream/cream cheese that would normally be found in a dip like this for Greek yogurt. I kept only a bit of the sour cream for richness but you could make it with just yogurt if you would like. Everything can get whirled in the blender or food processor and is together in a hot minute. Let it chill in the fridge for a spell and you will have a thick and creamy dip that packs a punch and is a perfect compliment to these Green Giant Veggie Snacks.

Make this Roasted Red Pepper Dip for your next soiree – just don’t expect to have any leftovers – it’s that good!
