Ingredients

  • 1 7-oz jar roasted red pepper, drained
  • 1 slice sandwich bread, lightly toasted
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 tsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded
  • 1/4 tsp ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed.

Notes

  • Almonds: Toast the slivered almonds for 3 minutes at 350F.
  • To mellow the garlic: If you don't like a strong garlic flavor, cook the garlic in boiling water for 30 seconds before adding it to the food processor.
  • Jalapenos: If you can't get/don't have fresh jalapenos, you can substitute in slices of pickled jalapenos.
