Red Bell Pepper Dip
3 red bell peppers, halved and seeded
1 cup cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt, to taste
Preheat the broiler. Place the peppers, skin-side up on a baking sheet and broil for 10-15 minutes. The skin should be blackened. Transfer to a zip-top bag and set aside until the peppers are cool enough to handle.
Next, peel away the skin and coarsely chop the flesh. Process in a food processor until it becomes a smooth puree. Transfer to a serving bowl.
Stir in the cream cheese, cayenne pepper and salt and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and cool in the refrigerator.
Serve with your favorite raw vegetables.
