There’s just something SO extraordinary about this Smoked Red Pepper and Feta Dip recipe!
The combo of the smoked peppers and onions with the feta, a little sour from the lemon juice, and spice from the crushed red pepper flakes.
Eeeekk, I think I just drooled a little just thinking about it!
You could totally make this in the oven if you don’t have a smoker, and I would highly encourage everyone to make it, and make it often!
Yes, it’s THAT amazing 🙂
How to Make Smoked Red Pepper and Feta Dip
First step is coating four red bell peppers and one red onion that’s been cut into thick slices with olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.
Then onto a smoker or Traeger pellet grill set to 250 degrees.
If you are doing these in the oven, place them in an oven set to 250 degrees.
I love using hickory wood pellets on my Traeger, click below to order from Amazon!
Let them smoke (or bake) for 2 hours, and turn them halfway through.
Then let them cool for a bit.
Once they are cooled, pull the stem off of each pepper.
The stem will easily pull right out.
Next up is putting the peppers and onions in a food processor or blender.
Add feta cheese, garlic, fresh lemon juice, dried oregano, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
Finally, blend for about a minute or until it’s all evenly combined.
Serve Smoked Red Pepper and Feta Dip with pita chips or toasted pita or Naan bread.
