1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced

Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise, discarding seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand.

Stir in bell pepper purée, salt, and honey; cook 5 minutes. Cool. Place onion mixture in a food processor, and process until smooth. Serve with pitas.

Note: Store the dip in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
