Feta-Chile Spread

Cooking Light
This is not served during Lent in all Greek households because many Greeks give up both meat and dairy. But the spread is good with pita bread, toasted baguette slices, or grilled vegetable sandwiches. Anaheim chiles are quite mild and add a flavor similar to that of green bell peppers.
8 servings (serving size: 3 tablespoons spread and 4 pita wedges)


+ Add To Shopping List
2 Anaheim or poblano chiles
2 cups (8 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
4 pitas, each cut into 8 wedges


Preheat broiler.

Place chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet, and broil 7 minutes or until lightly blackened, turning after 3 1/2 minutes. Peel and cut a lengthwise slit in each roasted chile; discard seeds and stems. Chop roasted chiles.

Place cheese, yogurt, and juice in a food processor; process until smooth. Spoon cheese mixture into a medium bowl, and stir in chopped chiles. Chill at least 1 hour before serving with pita wedges.
