1/4 of a red bell pepper
1 jalapeno seeded chopped(see note below)
2 tablespoons diced onion
Put the above ingredients in a food processor, and chop until very fine.
6 teaspoons of the above chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Mix well and cover. Chill overnight.
NOTE: I use a very small jalapeno and remove the seeds and ribs to lessen the heat factor for picky-picky husband, but if you like more "heat", use a larger pepper or leave some of the seeds in.
NOTE: I've never tried Miracle Whip in this recipe, so I can't comment on that. I used light mayonnaise and light sour cream and it worked very well.
NOTE: Make sure you let it sit in the fridge overnight, makes all the difference in the world.
NOTE: This keeps in the fridge for several days.
