for a great football game day appetizer, check out any of Ina garten’s cookbooks.  today, i selected a dip from one of her earliest books, and adapted the recipe to ingredients in my pantry.

i adjusted her sun dried tomato dip into a roasted red pepper dip for use on pita crisps. 

1/2 cup roasted red peppers from a jar
8 ounces low fat cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup low fat canola mayonnaise
1/2 cup light sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
chopped green onions for decoration

in a mini food processor, mix red peppers, cream cheese, mayo, sour cream and seasonings to taste.
process until smooth about 30 seconds.

the beautiful pink color is very attractive and complements the delicious taste of the dip  spoon the dip into a small container and top with sliced green onions as a garnish.  serve with homemade toasted pita crisps.
