Bell Pepper Bruschetta Dip is as delicious as Bell Pepper Bruschetta Crostini but I wanted to be able to showcase this as a dip for Game Day celebrations.
You just put it a bowl with your favorite chips instead of on little toasted breads. Really a delicious dip and I hope you get to make it soon.
3 Tablespoons olive oil
4 large red, orange and yellow bell peppers, finely chopped
1 small red onion or half of a large one, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 roma tomato , finely chopped
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoons dried basil or 1 Tablespoon fresh basil, chopped up
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Cook over medium high heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the garlic in the last 5 minutes for sauteing the onion and bells.
Add tomato and balsamic vinegar and cook 10 more minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
IF SERVING NOW:
Dish in a bowl and serve with chips such as pitas chips or tortilla chips.
If freezing – Cool completely to room temperature. Put in a freezer container as defined in my article Preparing food for the freezer.
TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING:
Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours. Zap in the microwave for a few seconds to take the chill off. Place in a bowl next to some chips and enjoy.
