Ingredients for Feta Cheese Dip
- Cream Cheese: you’ll need an 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened at room temperature.
- Feta Cheese: If possible, get a block of feta cheese in brine and crumble it yourself. It’s moister, milkier, and way more flavorful.
- Roasted Red Peppers: store-bought jarred sweet peppers, whether whole or cut into strips both work. You’ll want to dice them for this recipe.
- Sour Cream: Make sure it’s not fat-free sour cream.
- Garlic: Fresh garlic is the way to go. I do not recommend garlic powder.
- Dill: I recommend fresh dill for this recipe. Dried dill just does not taste the same.
- Red Wine Vinegar: It’s going to add some tangy kick to the dip.
- Red Chili Flakes: It gives the dip little heat. Feel free to add more to taste.
How to Make Feta Cheese Dip
- In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, feta cheese, roasted peppers, sour cream, garlic, dill, vinegar, and red chili flakes. Using a hand mixer beat the mixture until combined. You can also throw everything into a food-processor and pulse until combined.
- Spoon the mixture into a greased 1-1 1/2 quart baking dish. Bake at 400 F for 25-30 minutes.
How to Serve Feta Cheese Dip
This hot feta cheese dip makes a great appetizer to pair with fresh crisp veggies, such as:

It also serves well with whole-grain crackers, pita chips, or pita bread.
