Hungarian cheese spread

This is a traditional dish in Hungary, prepared with turo, a type of fresh cheese. I'm usually a greater fan of dishes that use turo in a sweet form, but this one is a keeper. It's very flavorful and makes a delicious party snack. Just ensure that everyone has a bite in the company, as the garlic makes it quite pungent...

0.5 cup fresh ricotta
3 cloves of garlic
1 jalapeno pepper
1 tsp hot Hungarian paprika

Mince the garlic. Wash and finely dice the jalapeno. Leave the veins in for a spicier dish.

Mix the diced jalapeno, garlic, ricotta, and paprika. Add salt to taste. Refrigerate for an hour before serving with toasted baguette slices.
