Htipiti (Greek Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Cheese Dip)

Htipiti (Greek Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Cheese Dip)
Htipiti (or tirokafteri or tyrokafteri or tyrokavteri) is a Greek style whipped feta cheese and roasted red pepper dip or spread and with game season on I just had to whip up a batch! At it's base this dip typically consists of feta, roasted red peppers, hot peppers, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic and it is all pureed or whipped into a dip. In this version I use use a roasted jalapeno pepper (which I roast at the same time that I make the roasted red peppers) as the hot pepper and I like to add some sun-dried tomatoes for an extra kick of flavour. I tend to serve this greek roasted red pepper and feta dip with toasted pita chips but veggies are also great for scooping!

Thanks for the mention...isn't it just divine? The sun dried tomatoes are the suprising "x-factor" in this dip.

I am absolutely trying this dip TOMORROW. This sounds completely divine, and I adore feta soooo much. I have a recipe for greek salad I've been meaning to try that included a processed creamy feta dressing, which sounds so fantastic, rather than trying to stab at the chunks of feta with a fork.

If you love feta, you will LOVE this indulgent dish from Gourmet. It's feta & a stick of butter---that's it! I used an entire package of pappardelle pasta, browned one stick of butter in a skillet, then tossed with feta. That's all there is to it, and it's pretty unbeleivable.

Happy cooking!

truly,
Lindsey

This was really delicious, Kevin! I omitted the jalapeno and it was still really tasty.. I mean how could it not be with feta, roasted red pepper and sun-dried tomatoes? :)

Hi kevin,
I just wanted to let you know that I have posted on this extremely flavorful and delicious dip, with a link back to your post. Thanks for a great recipe!

I think I could eat the whole bowl!

Julie Wampler said...

Woah, I would not be able to stop eating this!

Heather Christo said...

I could take down that whole bowl Kevin!

The recipe calls for roasted red peppers but in the preparation section you refer to sun dried peppers in oil. Not the same thing. Which should I use?
Thanks

Sorry Kevin, didn't see the sun dried tomatoes listed as an ingredient. Makes sense now!
