Jalapeno Lime Yogurt Cheese

Mrs Dash Fiesta Lime
Chopped Jalepeno

Drain your yogurt until it reaches the consistency you want it.  Add the rest of the ingredients to taste.  For 1 cup of yogurt cheese,  I used about a teaspoon of Mrs. Dash,  2 or 3 heaping tablespoons of fresh jalepeno peppers chopped and a few sprinkles of salt.   I use fresh goats milk yogurt but any plain yogurt will do.  The yogurt cheese has just the right amount of tangyness for these stronger flavors.  Mrs. Dash is very limey which was perfect but it isn't at all hot so I added the peppers.  I also like the texture of the peppers in it.  I liked it so much I am draining/ straining more yogurt to make some more yogurt cheese.  I will probably add some cilantro the next time too. 

Put the yogurt in a colander lined with cheesecloth that's sitting inside a bowl to catch the liquid that drains from it.   I leave it in the fridge to drain overnight.   Making yogurt cheese from plain yogurt is that simple.  It can be used to replace sour cream or cream cheese plain or flavored.
