Feta-Chile Spread

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.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3 tablespoons spread and 4 pita wedges)
