How to Make Red Pepper Dip

The most flavorful red pepper dip, that I really suggest to try. It’s called Adjika and originally it is from Abkhaz cuisine. However this appetizer is very popular in Armenia and when canning season starts, everyone makes sure to cook and can Adjika, to serve it in wintertime. It’s not just a dip, Adjika tastes very good as a side appetizer with cooked or fried potatoes, rice or pasta dishes.

There are several recipes for this same red pepper dip, I’ll introduce one of my own recipes. If I get good feedbacks, I’ll figure out this is something worth to be shared with different versions as well.If you’re following my Facebook or instagram, you should see my recipe test results and also my other daily food picks.

Hope you guys try it and happy cooking!
