Ain’t much easier than hummus.  Easy, good for you & popular.  All you need is a blender.  Don’t go buying that supermarket horseshit when you can whip it up fresh yourself & impress the villagers!

I used one bell pepper because that was all I had but I recommend using two – both for color & flavor.

Here is HOW YOU ROAST A RED PEPPER

Put it directly on your burner.  Using tongs – turn frequently until black all over.  Put in a Tupperware container & seal – to make it sweat.  Once it is cool enough to touch – rub the black skin off under cool running water.  Remove seeds & stem & voila!

DIRECTIONS

Blend everything in the blender for a minute or two until completely smooth.  I had to add about 1/3 cup of water to get it to blend.
