    dips for bread

    All the spices have dip recipes on the back. I love the Southwest Seasoning and the Dill dips. YUMMY!

    Below are some recipes for dips that would go well with bread.

    Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper Dip

    2 whole heads garlic, unpeeled
    1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1" wedges
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 pack (8 oz) fat free cream cheese, softened
    1/2 c fat free sour cream
    2 tsp lemon juice
    1/2 tsp rosemary herb seasoning mix

    Preheat oven to 425. Slice about 1/4 inch from top of each garlic head to expose garlic cloves. Place in center of deep dish baker; surround with bell pepper wedges. Spray garlic and bell pepper with olive oil using kitchen spritzer; cover with aluminum foil. Bake 40-45 minutes or until garlic is soft; cool completly.

    Place cream cheese in small batter bowl; microwave on high 30 seconds until softened. Whisk vigorously until smooth using stainless steel whisk.

    Remove skin from bell pepper; finely chop using food chopper. Squeeze garlic cloves from papery skin into batter bowl. Add bell pepper, sour cream, lemon juice and seasoning mix; mix well. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.

    Yields: 1 1/2 cups (serves 12)

    Cheesy Crab Dip Recipe
    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1 garlic clove, pressed
    1 package (8 ounces) imitation crabmeat, chopped 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
    1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions with tops
    1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
    1 lemon
    1 teaspoon Tabasco® hot pepper sauce
    1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped
    1 loaf Canape French Bread slices, toasted

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine cream cheese and mayonnaise in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well using Small Mix 'N Scraper®. Press garlic into batter bowl using Garlic Press; mix well.
    2. Chop crabmeat using Food Chopper. Grate Swiss cheese using Deluxe Cheese Grater. Thinly slice green onions using Utility Knife. Dice bell pepper using Chef's Knife. Using Juicer, juice lemon to measure 1 tablespoon juice. Add crabmeat, Swiss cheese, green onions, bell pepper, lemon juice and hot pepper sauce to batter bowl; mix well.
    3. Spoon crabmeat mixture into Mini-Baker. Chop almonds using Food Chopper; sprinkle over dip. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Serve with toasted Canapé French Bread slices.

    Cook's Tip: Substituting reduced-fat (Neufchâtel) cream cheese and light mayonnaise for the cream cheese and mayonnaise reduces the calories to 150 and total fat to 10 grams per serving. If desired, 2 cans (6 ounces each) white crabmeat, drained and flaked, can be substituted for the imitation crabmeat. Cut shapes from red bell pepper using Creative Cutters for an attractive garnish.
