Course Appetizer, Condiment
Cuisine American, Mexican
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper
  • 1 Clove Garlic optional
  • 1 Avocado, about ½ cup after cutting and scooping out the flesh
  • ¾ cup Cottage Cheese
  • 2 tbsp Lime Juice
  • ½ – ¾ tsp Salt adjust to taste
  • ⅛ – ¼ tsp Black Pepper Pwoder adjust to taste
  • tsp Cumin Powder
  • ¼ cup finely chopped Red Onion or Scallions I used red onion
  • 2-3 tbsp Tomato, pulp removed optional
  • 4 tbsp chopped Cilantro

Instructions

  • Take jalapeno pepper and garlic in a food processor bowl, process it for few seconds until jalapeno and garlic are minced.
  • Make a cut around avocado, lengthwise. Twist the avocado to separate it into two. Remove the seed and scoop out the flesh.
  • To the same food processor bowl, add avocado, cottage cheese, lime juice, salt, black pepper and process all the ingredients until well blended.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl, throw in rest of the ingredients, mix and chill until ready to serve.
  • Use it as a dip for tortilla chips or veggies, or use as a spread for bread. I like it better as a spread on bread than as a dip.

Notes

  • This is a versatile recipe and tweak to suit one’s palate. The dip/spread is mild in taste, hence adjust seasoning to taste.
  • If one prefers a coarse texture like guacamole, mash avocado and cottage cheese with a back of a spoon or a fork, and mix all the ingredients together.
  • Avocado and cottage cheese, though healthy are rich in calories. Careful when serving it as a dip.
  • Serve dip with tortilla chips.
