If I hadn't already roasted red peppers and had extra, I may not have rated as highly if I DID need to spend the time roasting. I wasn't that impressed. It needs a little zip, so I may add a dash of cayenne next time. It made a deep reddish color and everyone was expecting a hot flavor (we're from the South where spice is a big addition to almost everything). I made a double batch and have about 90% leftover, so I'm searching for a dish I can make where the red pepper dip can be an addition. Wish me luck!

A great roasted red pepper dip, I didn't have all the herbs in the house and it was still great without the thyme and parsley. Thanks, Jess96
