Spicy Red Bell Pepper Dip (or sauce?)

I made this dip on a whim after being inspired by this recipe.  But realized I really had no use for a dip… and I really needed to figure out what dinner was going to be in a few hours… hah.  So I honestly ended up using this as a sauce for a Raw Zucchini Pasta Dish instead of actually a dip.  But I ate a few bites of this as dip.. and it’s delicious! 🙂
