Smoky Red Pepper Crema is very versatile and you can adjust the flavors and consistency of this sauce in seconds. It is uber-rich and savory, perfect with any accompaniment.
Every red pepper crema recipe contains the same 4 ingredients for the base. They include red peppers, olive oil, garlic, and salt.
You can use store-bought jarred roasted red peppers if you’d like. Personally, I prefer making my own because it tends to have a smokier flavor. You can also smoke the red peppers in a smoker.
– If you would like to make a chunkier or textured sauce, simply set aside some of the peeled roasted bell peppers. – Finally, you can add some chili peppers to the mixture if you want to make a spicy sauce.
