Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 5 minutes.



Preheat broiler. Remove stem, core, and inner white ribs from peppers. Cut into large chunks and place on broiler-safe pan. Broil about 4–5 minutes on one side only until flesh softens and a few browned spots appear. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined. Mixture will be thick but spreadable. Use as an appetizer spread or as a sandwich spread.

Yield: 1 cup. Serving size: 2 tablespoons.
