  • Prep 25 min
  • Total 25 min
  • Servings 12

There’s only one word to describe this dip: brilliant. We took the classic Spanish sauce of almonds and roasted red peppers, and — through the magic of cream cheese — turned it into a layered dip that belongs at your next party. And the one after that, and the one after that, too. MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • Traditional Spanish Romesco sauce uses bread or bread crumbs to thicken the sauce. We’re using panko bread crumbs for an easy shortcut that maintains all the flavor of the classic sauce.
  • For even more Spanish flair, serve with olive bread.
