Neufchatel Cheese Spread (In a Pepper bowl!)

20180917_130246.jpg

So this isn’t a new recipe per say, it’s a different version of my Vegetable Neufchatel Cheese Dip, but more fun!

I love the fact that you can turn fruits and vegetables into serving bowls, and that’s exactly what I did when I discovered I had a yellow pepper sitting in my fridge that I had nothing to do with!

I took the inside and the seeds out of the pepper, and filled it with the Veggie Cheese dip…which can also double as a spread, so I’m thinking I need to work on the name of this recipe a little. (I’m open to any creative suggestions!)

Anyway, you can click here for the original recipe, and you can honestly use another vegetable for the bowl if peppers aren’t your thing. After sharing some crackers and cheese dip with some friends, I simply chopped the pepper up and mixed it in with the remaining dip I had left over.

Psst….this is great on bagels too!

Until next time, happy cheese spread making! And remember, use Neufchatel cheese instead of regular cream cheese. It has 1/3 the fat and helps cut back on the acid reflux symptoms greatly!
