Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Dip made with a delicious mixture of cream cheese, Greek yogurt and chili sauce easily made in just minutes for the perfect appetizer!  Serve with an assortment of fresh veggies and crackers!

This is honestly one of those staple dips I just had to re-share because it truly is THAT good and I think a lot of people overlook this recipe!  The flavors are incredible and while this sun dried tomato dip would taste great any time, I love making it in the summer because it’s the perfect dip to make while at the lake, to bring to the pool or even to just snack on while grilling out on the back deck.  This dip is full of delicious sun dried tomatoes, chopped red bell peppers, garlic, green onions and the base of the recipe is a combination of cream cheese, Greek yogurt and chili sauce.

I like to serve this dip up with a variety of fresh veggies, crackers or toasted pita bread, but feel free to enjoy this however you choose!  It really is the easiest thing you’ll make and I know will become a staple in your home!

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • sun dried tomatoes – the star of this dip!  I used dry packed sun dried tomatoes as they’re less in calories (and cheaper!) than oil-packed sun dried tomatoes, but either will work!
  • greek yogurt – makes this dip super creamy and is a great source of protein!  If you don’t have Greek yogurt, traditional plain yogurt will work as well
  • cream cheese – feel free to use regular or reduced fat cream cheese.  I like to let the cream cheese sit out and soften a bit before making the dip so that it’s easier to mix
  • chili sauce – adds flavor and spice!
  • red bell pepper – any color bell will work and his adds a nice crunch
  • green onions – adds color and a boost of flavor
  • garlic – you can use fresh chopped garlic or minced garlic from the jar
  • seasoning – a combination of celery seed and cayenne pepper (this does not make this dip spicy at all, but just adds a little kick!)

How to Make Sun Dried Tomato Dip

  1. Prepare tomatoes.  I like to use sun dried tomatoes that are dry packed as opposed to packed in oil as they’re less in calories (and cheaper!), however either will work in this recipe!  When using dry packed sun dried tomatoes, I empty them out into a bowl and pour boiling water over them to rehydrate them, letting them sit for about 10 minutes so that they can plump up and release all this delicious flavor!
  2. Chop veggies.  While the tomatoes are soaking, chop the red bell pepper and green onions.  Once the tomatoes are ready, give those a good chop.
  3. Mix together.  In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and chili sauce with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.  Add in the veggies, garlic and seasonings and mix until well combined.
  4. Chill and serve!  Chill the dip for at least 1 hour (or overnight) to really let those flavors marinate.  Serve with sliced bell peppers, cucumbers, celery, crackers or toasted bread and enjoy!

Prepping and Storage

This sun dried tomato dip keeps well in the fridge for 3 to 4 days, in a sealed, airtight container.  In fact, this dip only gets more flavorful as the flavors meld, so you can easily bring it out for a great snack for several days.  I highly recommend making a double batch of this recipe ahead of time as this is a huge crowdpleaser and I promise this dip will go quickly!

      Oh no! I use Heinz chili sauce for this recipe or you could use a sweet chili sauce. I’m so sorry you ended up using Sriracha!

    Hi Kelly,

    Did you use reduced fat cream cheese or regular? Wondering which is counted in the nutrition/points. It looks great, and I am definitely saving for future use.

    1. Kelly says:

      I used regular cream cheese 🙂
