Pitos Smokehouse BBQ - Char-Grilled Capsicum and Goats Cheese Dip

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients

2 red capsicums, seeded and cut into quarters
100g goats cheese
Salt and cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
Chopped flat leaf parsley, to serve
200g Pitos (Smokehouse BBQ)

Method

1. Heat a stovetop grill or barbecue grill on high heat. Spray the skins of the capsicums with a little oil spray, then place on the grill skin side down.

2. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until the skin is quite charred. Remove the pieces from the grill, place in a plastic bag and seal for 10 minutes (this allows the capsicum flesh to ‘sweat’ off the skin).

3. Remove the capsicum from the bag and peel away the skin. Discard skin and place the flesh in a food processor or blender along with the goats cheese, salt, pepper and olive oil. Blend until fully combined.

4. To serve, transfer dip to a serving bowl and sprinkle with a little chopped flat leaf parsley. Serve with Pitos (Smokehouse BBQ).

Tip:
Pitos (Spicy Moroccan) or Pitos (Tangy Tomato & Red Pepper Salsa) can be used as an alternative to Pitos (Smokehouse BBQ).
