    This ubiquitous Greek dish is served as a meze, or as a side to chips. I also like it in sandwiches. The type and amount of chilli you use is up to you - the hotter you like it, the more you should add! This produces a rather mild tyrokafteri that should please everyone's tastes - start with half a chilli if you're timid. Serve with crusty bread or pitta for an unbelievably quick and easy nibble!

    Serves: 8 

    • 400g feta
    • 1 red or green chilli, seeds removed

    Prep:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. Place the feta and the chilli in a food processor. Process until a smooth, creamy consistency is reached.


    If you like more heat, leave the seeds in the chilli. For a variation on this recipe, you can also add a jarred roasted red pepper, which lends a pretty red hue.
    To achieve a more spreadable consistency, if necessary, add a tablespoon of Greek yoghurt at a time until your desired consistency is reached. Note that this probably won't be necessary, as the feta becomes quite creamy after enough blending in the processor.

    We halved the amounts and pleased we did as we found this very salty as a dip for us  -  11 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
