Dried Peppers Filled With Ricotta Cheese

This is an old Macedonian recipe, I remember my grandmother always prepared red dried peppers with ricotta cheese. This food is represented in almost every Macedonian house, and I can confirm that we are a nation that loves peppers cooked in countless ways. Red peppers have favorable effects on our health too.


  • dried peppers
  • ricotta cheese (urda,izvarka)
  • 1-2 eggs
  • garlic
  • spices to taste



  1. First, shortly fry cottage cheese with garlic, then add spices. You can also avoid frying ingredients by only mixing them and filling peppers with this mixture, but I think the taste is better if ingredients are shortly fried first. Add the egg(s) when removed from the stove.
  2. Boil dried peppers shortly so they soften a bit and simply fill them with cheese. You can choose peppers that are chilly or not, depends on your taste, I don’t eat chilly food so I prefer non-chilly peppers.
  3. Fry peppers on hot oil.
