This past week my friend Esther gave me huge bag of beautiful Red Peppers from her family ranch here in the Coachella Valley – Rancho Leamus. I knew immediately that I wanted to make some of this dip. All you need are the peppers ,a small handful of fresh ingredients and a food processor then you are home free. You can dip Veggies, Sliced baguette toasts or Pita Chips into it and enjoy.
