Sun-dried Tomato Dip

DipWhen I was home for the holidays, we threw a baby shower for my sister-in-law, who’s due in February. I’m so excited for the arrival of my second niece/nephew! We made waaaay too much food, but it was delicious, and this sun-dried tomato dip was on the menu. It’s a Barefoot Contessa recipe, and it goes great with chips or a vegetable platter — it’s super creamy, with great flavor from the sun-dried tomatoes and scallions and a nice hit of spice from the hot sauce. The best thing — this is super easy to make. I don’t even have any tips for you, except to make sure the cream cheese is room temp to make blending it easier. Quick and easy!
