This chili mint yogurt dip recipe was inspired by one of Jamie Oliver’s recipe and it’s perfect for pouring over some oven-roasted veggies!
I don’t remember exactly how I got the idea to make this spicy chili yogurt dip. I think I saw a similar recipe on Jamie Oliver’s show, as I know he’s crazy about chilies and all spicy things :). Anyways, you’ll love it! Even if you’re not that big of a chili fan, this dip will surely please you.
It’s not that spicy either because the mint and yogurt somehow ‘neutralize’ the spiciness. It has a wonderful fresh flavor and goes great with Spring roasted veggies and Baby Potatoe Frittata , or any other dish you want to serve it with.
This chili and mint yogurt dip is extremely easy to make as you’ll only need just a few ingredients. Greek yogurt is used as a base, but you can use some sour cream as well. Make sure you dilute it a bit first.
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- a handful of chopped, fresh mint leaves
- 1-2 chilies, sliced
- extra-virgin olive oil
- sea salt and pepper, to taste
- Put the yogurt in a bowl.
- Add chopped mint leaves, sliced chilies and spices.
- Blend well and serve with olive oil on top.
