This is a simple and tasty little recipe. You can put it on a bagel, pita or bread, spread it on celery, use it for a dip with crackers or veggies. Its nice for lunch or as an appetizer. This spread serves many purposes! Its full of vegetables and the red pepper gives it a nice color. You could use green pepper instead, if that is your preference. And if you want to spice it up, add a jalapeño!!
A food processor makes this recipe a breeze. Its important to let your prepared veggies drain before you add them to the cream cheese, otherwise your spread will be runny.
