A few Roasted Red Pepper Recipe notes:

  • Jarred roasted red peppers were used for this recipe, but if you have a bunch of fresh red peppers, easily roast them in the oven or in a hot pan. To roast, toss peppers with a little bit of olive oil, place on a baking sheet and roast in 400-degree F oven for about 15-20 minutes. If using a pan stove-top, heat pan over medium-high heat and place peppers in pan, turn every minute or so to roast each side. The same technique can be done over an open flame, carefully turning peppers using heat-proof tongs. If roasting your own, use the same amount called for in the recipe below.
  • If you’re counting calories, easily substitute low fat sour cream for an irresistible lighter bite. Serve with vegetables, chips or crackers.

Enjoy!
