I mentioned in a previous post a few weeks ago how I went up to York, Maine for a little family weekend getaway. We always visit our favorite Inn while we are up there, York Harbor Inn. This is where I get that seafood chowder that us absolutely to die for, but unfortunately the executive chef won’t spill the beans on the recipe! As an appetizer that night, my mom ordered a red pepper and artichoke dip and it was amazing!! I told her I’d try to recreate it when I returned to Charleston and would post it on the blog for her. So to get the item description, I went to York Harbor’s dining section of their website and to my surprise, there was a “Recipes” tab on there, and the red pepper dip was one of the recipes listed! I was thrilled that I’d be able to get the exact ingredients and ratios so that it could turn out almost exactly as it did when we had dinner there.
I really love the flavor of the red peppers in here. I did add some Italian blend cheese to this to make it a little thicker. I also think next time I’m going to cut the amount of artichokes in half. I’m not a huge fan of them, plus I find them incredibly hard to chew. Am I weird, or do other people think that too?
