Roasted Red Pepper Dip

I've been making this for quite a few years so I am not sure where I got the recipe. We are planning a picnic this weekend and this came to mind. As its starting to warm up (a little) all the fresh colorful veggies are starting to look better and yummy red peppers are no exception! This has always been popular at get togethers and only has 4 ingredients.

What You Need:
1 red bell pepper, cut into sections, seeds and ribs removed
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
4 cloves garlic, peeled and whole
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet/baking pan or drizzle with olive oil and place peppers and garlic onto the pan. Bake until garlic is soft and peppers are golden around the edges and tender. Let cool. Combine sour cream and cream cheese. Put pepper and garlic into a blender or food processor and puree. Combine with the cream cheese mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chips, veggies, pitas or crostini bread.
