Fantastic appetizer from Bon Appetit. Use whatever fresh, mild chilies you can find. Great with a hearty Zinfandel or pale ale.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare medium heat grill.
  2. Char poblano and jalapeno chilies until blackened all over. Wrap chilies in paper bag and let stand 15 minutes. Peel, seed, and coarsely chop 2 poblano chiles and jalapeno chile; transfer to processor. Add feta, sour cream, chopped fresh dill and lemon juice to processor; puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill until firm enough to spread, about 2 hours.
  3. Peel, seed and thinly slice remaining poblano chile. This can be made 1 day ahead.
  4. Prepare barbecue grill to medium-high heat. Brush 1 side of baguette slices with extra virgin olive oil. Grill oiled side of bread until toasted, about 2 minutes. Transfer toasts to platter. Spoon about 2 teaspoons chile spread over each toast, top with thinly slices poblano chile, and serve.

I made this earlier in the summer--it's great. Just a little heat, not too overwhelming. Keeps well in the refrigerator for repeat uses.
