  • 2 Anaheim or poblano chiles 

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) crumbled feta cheese 

  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt 

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 

  • 4 pitas, each cut into 8 wedges



  • Preheat the oven to broil.

  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, put the chiles onto the foil, and broil until lightly blackened (about 10 minutes), turning halfway through broiling.

  • Peel the chiles, and make one cut lengthwise down each pepper. Remove the seeds and stems, and chop the chiles.

  • Put the feta cheese, yogurt, and lemon juice into a food processor and blend until smooth. Put the blended mixture into a bowl, and add the chopped chiles. Stir until mixed well. Put the mixture in the refrigerator and chill for at least one hour. Serve with the pita wedges.
