I made a half-quantity of this delicious spread/dip and DH and I loved it! Used a hot banana pepper and a very creamy-mild feta (Dodonis Brand). Great meze!

The taste is great but I would have liked it more spicy. I bought a red hot pepper. Next time I'll use 2. I find it too thick. It's hard to dip pita chips in it. I don't know if the feta could be the problem. Thanks Katia :) Made for PAC Spring 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
