Mojo picón or Red Pepper Dip

Mojo Picón or Red Bell Pepper Spread

5 from 1 reviews

A Canary mojo picón, or red pepper dip, is a typical sauce from the Canary Islands used to accompany several dishes, such as papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes). This recipe, however, is a spreadable version and is ideal for a healthy snack, an aperitif or to add it as a healthy fat to your balanced plate. It’s a gluten-free recipe and you only have to eliminate one ingredient if you prefer to prepare a vegan version of it. It’s perfect to be added to your Healthy Meal Planning or Batch Cooking.
