Will brought this to Barry’s birthday party, and everyone there wanted the recipe. “Yum, what’s the crunchy thing in there?” everyone asked. It’s the water chestnuts!
Will admits the recipe wasn’t completely original — he based it on Tina’s Artichoke Dip.
1 red, yellow, or orange pepper, seeded and diced
1 can of water chestnuts, diced
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 C mayonnaise
1/2 C parmesan, grated
Dash hot sauce
Pinch of salt
Dash of black pepper
Combine all ingredients and bake at 400 F for 15 minutes, until bubbly. Serve with a couple of long baguettes, sliced.
