A delicious, creamy cheese spread from Greece. It is usually served as part of a mezze platter but it can also be enjoyed by itself, with slices of warm bread.

1 Florina pepper or any sweet pepper
1 -2 chili peppers (depending on how spicy you want the spread to be)

Remove the seeds from the Florina pepper and the chili peppers and finely chop them.

Step 2

Heat the olive oil over medium heat and saute until tender.

Step 3

Place the anthotyro cheese and crumbled feta cheese in a blender. Add the sautéed peppers with the oil from the pan and the paprika and process the ingredients until you get a smooth and homogeneous mixture.

Step 4

Keep the cheese spread refrigerated in a glass jar, pouring a little oil on the surface from time to time.
