Spicy feta dip with Mama Lil's peppers

This dip went quickly! Inspired by A Spicy Perspective, we traded the roasted red pepper for Mama Lil's peppers, but are positive you can't go wrong either way. 

  • 1 lb. feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ lb. whole milk ricotta
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tbsp. fresh chopped thyme
  • 1 tbsp. dried oregano
  • 1+ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup Mama Lil's peppers, drained
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Pita bread, cut into wedges or pita chips
  • Kalamata olives as garnish
  1. Using a food processor, pulse the feta, ricotta, garlic, oil, lemon juice, herbs and crushed red pepper together until smooth
  2. Drain and dice the peppers.
  3. Scoop the mixture into a bowl. Fold in the red pepper and ground black pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve
  4. To serve, drizzle another tablespoon of olive oil on top and serve with pita wedges and olives
