Spicy Feta Cheese Dip (Tyrokafteri)

Hey there!   I have been busy because the Children’s workshop is coming up next week, and so I have been preparing a few other things to talk about besides just cooking the food and feeding them. 🙂  My friend asked me if I was willing to translate a few words from English to Greek for the children, and I thought that was so sweet. 🙂  Some of the words are Mom, Dad, Thank you, Grandfather, Grandmother, Please, Hello and few more…they will actually have them written on Index cards so that the children will be able to pronounce the words along with me.  🙂  I think this is an amazing experience and very glad to be a part of it. 🙂

The weekend has come around again, and so if you are planning on having friends or family over try out this absolutely amazing that is if you love Hot Chilli Peppers combined with Feta Cheese. I am sure you, your friends and family will love this dip! This is my absolute favorite, I think I can say in all honesty that I love this even more than the Greek Roe Fish Dip.   I chose a milder pepper for this dip because up and until Tuesday we were having major heatwaves here so I didn’t want to make it super hot. 

I don’t usually find a milder pepper  in the market, so this actually was quite a surprise because the dip had just the right balance that I wanted between the cheese and the pepper. 🙂 Now, if you want to go super hot go for it 🙂  3 simple ingredients make an amazing dip,  if you do try this recipe let me know if you liked it!!



  • 1 Chilli Pepper mild or strong
  • 1 cup Feta Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil


  1. Cut Feta Cheese into pieces,
  2. add the cheese into the food processor along with the Chilli Pepper and Olive Oil.
  3. Beat until all combined and you have a lovely smooth texture.
  4. Spread on toasted or fresh bread. 🙂 This will keep in the refrigerator for at least 4 days, that;s if you have any left over!! 🙂

    Thanks so much for all your lovely comments...Ok I understand salt is an issue. To be honest I barely add any salt to my food I leave it up to everyone else how much they want to add into their food. :) I think this the best way dealing with salt....Thank you so much and huge hugs..:) My apologises for my late response.
