    I would love to make your Red Pepper Dip for my Christmas party this weekend -- but I don't have a blender or food processor. Will the dip be ok if I finely chop the red peppers & add to the softened cream cheese & other ingredients?
    Thanks so much! Can't wait to try this one!!

    I would expect that it would probably be as good (albeit a little time-consuming) if you chop/mince the peppers as finely as you possibly can with the sharpest knife you own, and if you blend the ingredients thoroughly, with an electric mixer if you have one. Otherwise stir, and stir, and stir, and stir...... icon_smile.gif

    Another possibility, although I have not personally tried this, would be to start with only 1/2 of the jar of roasted peppers and add some ground red pepper (Durkee manufactures it). But be warned - ground red pepper is hotter than a Chinese firecracker - I would suggest starting with about 1/16 teaspoon, then mix thoroughly, taste a sample and, if you desire, keep adding tiny quantities until it suits your taste

    Good luck, and please let me know how it works out!

    Chef Miller - Just wanted to say thanks for a great recipe. I forgot that I had a small food processor in my pantry (Sunbeam Oskar)--I don't use it very often, so I forgot all about it! I made a double batch of the dip, but the bowl was too small to put all the ingredients in at once, so I processed the peppers, onions, garlic & lemon juice in two batches, then added it to another mixing bowl where I had the softened cream cheese waiting. Then I used my hand-held mixer to combine everything. I also added some hot sauce for a little extra zing. It was very good with crackers & raw veggies. Everyone loved it--two thumbs up!
