A tantalizing dip is a great way to provide instant gratification. Many can be made ahead of time and simply heated or plated.

Roasted Pepper Dip

Simple ingredients, easy prep time, low food cost and delicious flavor make a roasted red pepper dip a great option for your appetizer menu. Serve it with toasted Italian bread or pita chips.
