Roasted Red Pepper and White Bean Dip

Jump to Recipe

I’ve always been a sports fan. My dad and brother taught me at a young age to love sports. I played basketball in Jr. High, but chose to be a cheerleader in high school-no laughs please. I had fun cheering and I got the best seats for free. Sometimes I got in trouble for yelling at the refs instead of the cheers, but it was all in good fun:)

I am excited for the Super Bowl on Sunday. My team (the Bears) were out of the running from the beginning, but oh well, I will still have fun watching the game. We are having some friends over which means extra mouths to feed. Yahoo! I haven’t finalized the menu yet, but I am getting closer. I guess I better hurry and decide, huh?

I think this roasted red pepper and white bean dip will make an appearance. It is easy, tasty, and healthy. I know Super Bowl parties are meant for indulging, but I always like to have healthy options available. I made this dip in the food processor and it took about five minutes. This is a no fuss dip!

The white beans make the dip nice and creamy. The roasted red peppers, lemon, rosemary, and red pepper flakes add tons of flavor. I serve the dip with pita chips, vegetables, or baguette slices. It is also good as a spread on a veggie sandwich.

If you want to offer a healthy snack on Sunday, try my roasted red pepper dip. Your guests will devour it, whether they are trying to eat healthy or not.

Here are a few other tasty snacks to serve:

Black Bean Salsa-this salsa is hearty and healthy. Serve with baked chips.
Cilantro Lime Hummus-I love cilantro and lime together, this hummus is great with pita chips or baked tortilla chips.
Guacamole Dip-homemade guacamole is a must for game day!
Josh’s Mango Salsa-Josh is known for his mango salsa-it is the best!
Baked Potato and Sweet Potato Chips-make your own baked chips. The sweet potato chips are my favorite!

Gaby from What’s Gaby Cooking made an amazing spinach dip with pita. Make sure you add this to your party list too. I know I am going to make it!

  1. So as a homeschooling mom of 4, I shouldn’t be running off to the store–in the middle of the day–to buy ingredients for one dish. But I did! And it’s absolutely delicious! I love dips and I now I can eat it to my heart’s content. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  2. okay this looks good. I love super bowl food!

    …and i have all these ingredients (minus the herbs) but heck, maybe I’ll head to sunflower farmers market tomorrow!

  3. Love this dip. Used it instead of pizza sauce on little tortilla pizzas with goat cheese, artichoke hearts, and procciuto.
