Feta cheese and hot peppers recipe: “Tirokafteri”


Tirokafteri, which means “hot”, spicy cheese, is the Greek name of this delicacy.
Ingredients:
4 small hot peppers (any kind)

4 ounces feta cheese

A pinch of black pepper

2-3 tbsp olive oil

Salt if needed (taste before you add salt)

Preparation: Cut the hot peppers in small pieces and melt them with a pestle. They don’t melt completely but they release some liquid, aroma and taste. Add the feta cheese (melted with a fork) and mix to absorb all the pepper stuff. Add the oil and the pepper and mix very well. Taste and add a pinch of salt if needed. Usually feta cheese is salty enough.

Note: Wash your hands right after you cut the peppers. It really burns if you touch your eyes or other sensitive spots.

Serve and enjoy almost with any dish!
