    I hate to say it but I did not like this. I love roasted red peppers and had high hopes for this recipe. I'm glad I tried it before serving it to company. I won't be making it again.

    I used this recipe as inspiration yesterday. I added roasted jalapeno peppers and omitted the pita bread and water. I was fantastic!

    You can prepare this without the pita bread: the flavor is the same and the texture is great. I've prepped it both ways. Each time I added some chopped fresh serrano pepper to add some heat. The flavors blend well and the spread holds up in the fridge for several days. Delicious!!

    This is absolutely delicious. Very flavorful. I used Hungarian hot paprika to give it an extra kick. It definitely tastes better the second day, so I advise making it a day ahead.

    oops, I see... the pita bread goes IN the mix. Bummer, as we're gluten-free over here.

    You don't specify when/if to add the 1 cup of water. I blended it with everything and it was way too liquid-y. I'm leaving it in the fridge over night, hoping it gets more edible. Please advise.

    Has become a regular in my house. Also works well with good quality jar of roasted red peppers in oil (not brined in vinegar)

    Outstanding. Easy and delicious. I often grill red or yellow peppers and freeze them when they are in season or well-priced. Having them ready made this easy recipe even quicker. Great as a dip or as a spread on a sandwich. Delicious with shrimp and poultry.
