I made this as an appetizer for Christmas and seemed to disappear into thin air! I like it with pita chips, and it's awesome with veggies and as a spread for sandwiches too!

This one is a winner! I used jarred roasted peppers and once the garlic was roasted it was a breeze to put together. I served it with bagel chips, sliced cucumbers and baby carrots. Everyone loved it.
Holy wow this is good. I used the jarred red peppers to speed up the process and it turned out AWESOME!
