YES, I have ANOTHER appetizer here for you today!! And guess what? It’s even easier than last week’s holiday hummus.

First off, it’s only TWO ingredients. TWO!

Oh wait, actually three including the olive oil. Three ingredients. 

The best part is that these ingredients are all things you can keep on hand. Sure, the feta isn’t exactly a pantry staple, but a block will stay fresh in the fridge for quite a while so I suggest grabbing these things to have on hand for snack or friend emergencies.

I know that baked feta has been a trend here in the last year, but I first baked feta almost a decade ago. It is one of my favorite things ever. Slightly melted but still set enough to sit on a cracker. That’s perfect! 

This baked feta is even easier than the one I shared in 2021. Really.

This is how it goes down:

I drizzle the feta with some olive oil. Bake it until slightly soft and warm and melty with a golden top.

Then add a few spoonfuls of spicy chili crisp on top. However much you want! Get the crunchy part and the oil. Drizzle it all over.

Serve with crackers, pita chips, anything. It’s THE BEST.

That is it. Boom.

Now let’s talk about my chili crisp obsession. It’s a new obsession for me. I mean, I first had it years ago, but I recently fell in love with it.

The love surprised me! I don’t enjoy super spicy things at all. But this chili crisp changed the game for me. It’s my favorite one, the only brand I absolutely love.

That brand is NOT overly spicy. In fact, it’s barely spicy. Like I’d give it a two on a spice level of ten. Which is what I prefer.

It’s also SO incredibly crunchy. There is so much crisp and crunch and umami flavor that I could practically eat it with a spoon. I like it on everything.

Perhaps the best part of this recipe? It’s that there IS NO RECIPE.

It’s true. You can get away with whatever you have here.

Any size of feta block works. The chili crunch comes in a jar, so use as many spoonfuls as you wish. It really depends on how much you love the chili crunch flavor.
