Three Cheese Pepperoncini Spread

Michael Hall


This is my own take on a Greek Feta spread known as Kopanisti. I love the combination and bite from the cheeses and the zing from the peppers and garlic. Add the crushed red pepper if you like it extra spicy! Enjoy!

This is a great appetizer to put out at your next party. This spread has a slight bite to it, but it's not not too hot (at least not to the Kitchen Crew's standards). If you don't like things hot, you can cut back on the peppers and pepper juice. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Three Cheese Pepperoncini Spread


  1. Make sure Cream Cheese is softened.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine. It's better to have this a little chunky instead of a smooth Puree.
  3. This can be eaten immediately but will be better if allowed to sit for a while or refrigerated overnight.
  4. Serve warm or chilled with Pita Crisps, Crackers or any sturdy Breads or Toasts.
