Happy Hour Sundried Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Dip Recipe by Terri Kendrick

Happy Hour Sundried Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Dip Recipe

I’m always on the lookout for easy and tasty appetizers to make for happy hours and parties. This warm creamy dip recipe, combining two of my favorite ingredients, sundried tomatoes and roasted red peppers, made it rise to the top of my “gotta try it” list!

Inspired by EatingWell, this sweet and savory dip recipe can be mixed, cooked and even served (if you choose) in the same pan, making cleanup a breeze! To make this warm roasted red pepper dip you will need sundried tomatoes packed in oil, sundried tomato oil (from the jar), shallots, dry white wine, a jar of roasted red peppers, sour cream, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, fresh garlic, hot sauce and parsley flakes.

Serve this Italian-inspired pepper and tomato dip as an appetizer or snack with crackers, toasted bread, pita chips or fresh cut-up vegetables. The easy gluten-free dip also makes an interesting spread on a burger.

Recipe Notes

  • Add more cream cheese for a thicker consistency.
  • For a little more spice, increase the amount of hot sauce.
  • If you don't have a shallot, you could use red onion or even chopped green onions.
  • Fresh parsley can be substituted for dry. Just use a little more of it. 

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring often. Add sundried tomatoes. Stir constantly for about 1 minute. Add wine and stir until the wine is nearly evaporated.
  2. Add roasted peppers, sour cream, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic, hot sauce and 1 tablespoon of parsley. Reduce heat to low. The mixture will be thick, so stir constantly for 3 to 4 minutes until it’s well-combined and smooth and the dip is heated through.
  3. Sprinkle with the remaining parsley before serving.
