Tyrokavteri - dip of the Gods

Tyrokayteri Well, we are currently on a visit to the UK, and already we are missing the foodstuff find of our stay in Crete - Tyrokavteri (Τυροκαυτερη).

This dip has become a staple part of our diet, being a mix of cream cheese, feta, and hot peppers. It has a bit of a spicy tang to it, and we get through tubs of the stuff, becoming our substitute for hummus, which just doesn't seem to be available in Crete.

If you want to make some yourself you will need:

  • 2 or 3 roasted red peppers
  • 450 gr feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup or 60 ml olive oil
  • 1 or 2 hot peppers or jalapeno peppers
  • 2 tblsp lemon juice

Combine the feta and half the olive oil in a food processor until creamy. Add all the types of pepper (plus a pinch of black pepper if you fancy it) until it is well combined. Then gradually add the remaining olive oil and lemon juice, and hey presto, heavenly dip!
