Simple recipes – no taste? NOT IN MY HOUSE!Jump to Recipe
Simple recipes enable the ingredients to shine. The key is learning how to bring ingredients together that balance well. In this Cream Cheese Pepper Roll, the recipe has sweetness from the cream cheese, sharpness from the peppers and the freshness the parsley. The result is also so colorful and pleasing to the eye.
Below are some of my other appetizer recipes that were so easy to make, had only a small number of ingredients and were delicious.
EASY ASPARAGUS TART
PIMENTO CHEESE BOWL
SMOKED SALMON DIP
I have already been suggesting how easy this recipe is. The hardest thing to do is to remember to take the cream cheese and goat cheese out of the fridge enabling it to soften. The rest is simply chopping – cutting the peppers into a small dice and putting a good chop on the parsley and cilantro.

Make sure the cream cheese and goat cheese are soft. Dice the peppers into a small dice. Add the herbs and one of the peppers to a food processor. Pulse until fully mixed. In a large bowl, add the cream cheese, goat cheese and the blended herbs. Mix until combined. Roll into a log and wrap in plastic wrap in put in the fridge for 20 – 30 minutes. Remove the log from the fridge and unwrap the plastic leaving the log on the end of the wrap. Place the diced sweet peppers on the rest of the wrap. Slowly roll the log over the peppers. Once completely covered, press the peppers into the log. Serve with crackers. Enjoy!
