    Jostlori's Note:

    Tyri = cheese, Kafteri = hot, as in spicy. So there you have it, a spicy feta cheese dip or spread. Goes great on an appetizer tray and makes anything dipped in it taste fantastic. A word of caution though - don't use the dried-up feta from the grocery store. Please use a good quality feta from an ethnic deli, or at least a mass produced feta that comes packaged in brine (TJ's or WF are good options). I found this recipe on Elly Says Opa - and believe me, you'll be saying "opa", too!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the banana peppers directly over a gas flame (or under a broiler), turning often, until blackened spots appear on all sides. Place in a bowl and cover with a clean towel until cook enough to handle. Peel, seed, and remove the stems from the peppers; then, chop them.
    2. 2
      Add the peppers, feta, Greek yogurt, and cider vinegar to the bowl of a food processor and processes until fairly smooth.
    3. 3
      Slowly stream in the oil, while continuing to pulse. You may need more or less, depending on your desired consistency.
    4. 4
      Season with salt and pepper to taste and refrigerate for at least an hour.
    5. 5
      NOTE: You can use different types of peppers, just adjust for the degree of spiciness you want.

      My husband loves tyrokafteri, so I made this for him. It really hit the spot. Just enough of a heat kick from the banana pepper. A great meze.
