Roasted Red Pepper Hot Cheese Dip
Recipe type: Dips
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  1. Roast the red pepper and the jalapeno by placing on a foil lined baking sheet, and baking at 400F for 20-30 minutes, turning once halfway through baking.
  2. Let peppers cool, then dice.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine cream cheese and cheeses, stirring until melted and smooth. Add chopped roasted peppers and paprika, and stir well.
  4. If desired, place dip in a oven-safe serving bowl, and top with additional cheddar cheese. Bake at 400F for about 10 minutes, until top is brown and bubbly. Serve warm.
Since this is best served warm, you may want to keep it warm on the stove or in a slow cooker on the low setting.
This makes a rather large serving, so for smaller gatherings, I recommend cutting the recipe in half.
