"This is one of my dad's favorite recipes that he's handed down to my sisters and myself. It's a little different from traditional guacamole dip cause of the cottage cheese, but very delicious! Serve with chips or vegetables."

I recommend to puree the cottage cheese before adding to mixture to create a smoother consistency. Great dip recipe and a healthy addition with the cottage cheese.

Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Taste is superb (but do let it chill several hours before serving). I used the juice of two limes and real garlic pre-chopped in a jar. If you want to disguise the cottage cheese you can use blender. The cottage cheese gets milage out of the avacado, stretching it without sacrificing taste. Really wonderful, thanks again.


I only made a half recipe since there were only four of us eating this, but it disappeared quickly! Since hubby and I don't really like cottage cheese, I knew I'd have to take the suggestion of another reviewer and blend it in the magic bullet first. This was an excellent idea! I blended the cottage cheese and half the avocodo with the lemon juice and added real minced garlic. I then mashed up the other half of the avocado and added the onion and tomato for texture. We really enjoyed this recipe. I too added hot sauce, cumin and juice from the jar of jalapenos for extra flavor.
