Savory Red Pepper Dip with Pita Points Recipe Will Keep Everyone Coming Back for More

Leftover dip is wonderful served cold with crudités or spread on sandwiches for a smoky flavor twist.

When it comes to appetizers, we love a good dip — they’re incredibly versatile, go great with crackers or veggies and, frankly, are just fun to eat. And for times you’re craving big flavors, you can’t go wrong with our Red Pepper Dip with Pita Points. It’s made with a mix of peppers, garlic and onions, plus cream cheese to give it that silky smooth texture.

What makes this dip even better is that it’s so easy to make! Ready in 30 minutes or less, you’ll have an appetizer that party guests won’t be able to stop talking about. The roasted red peppers give the dip a bit of a smokier flavor that’s irresistible. Add in some cheddar cheese for an even creamier texture. Once everything is combined and cooked, you can get your pita bread ready. Toss it in the oven for about five minutes to perfectly crisp it up and you’re all set!
