What is it about Cheese and Crackers that makes me smile? I adore party foods. I could eat them for supper every night, but the hubbyman may not embrace my enthusiasm. This is a great dip for crackers! Keebler® Flips are my cracker of choice for this one!
3 eight ounce packages of softened cream cheese; I use Philadelphia® Cream Cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 cup red bell pepper, diced small
1 cup yellow bell pepper, diced small
1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced small
1/2 cup cucumber, diced small
1 cup carrots, diced small
1 cup celery, diced small
1/2 cup purple onion, diced small
1 cup kalamata olives, sliced
1 tsp. salt, pepper and Badia® Complete seasoning
1 Tablespoon dried Dill
yeah, its a lot of veggies.. but so worth it!
Dice all your veggies small, I keep the measuring cup there and measure out as I go. Then when I have what I need I bag up any left over and keep for another day.
I slice and seed the cucumber before I dice it, that takes a lot of the water out.
Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, the veggies and spices in the bowl of a food processor.
Pulse until the mixture is the consistency that you like. Sometimes I make it with chunkier bits of the veggies, but today I made it a bit more smooth.
Put the mixture in a container with a lid and keep in the fridge and chill for at least 2 hours ( the longer it sits the better it tastes)
This recipe can be made with your choice of veggies, more or less of your favorite ingredients.
