A food spread that is made from roasted sweet peppers, which can use any variety of sweet pepper as the base for the spread. The red pepper is most often used since it provides a mildly sweet and delicate flavor to the spread. Sweet pepper spread can be served on crackers, breads or mixed into other spreads to enhance the flavor of food items such as sour cream, cheese dips, or cheeses. It can be spread on small slices of French bread and topped with a piece of cheese to make a bruschetta appetizer. Sweet pepper spread can also be added to baked dishes, such as fish or poultry, to add a distinctive flavor.
