Cottage Cheese Tortilla Dip

5 May

I am eating this dip as I am writing this post…

Today is 5 de Mayo and everyone has their craving for something Mexican. I have been so busy lately that I haven’t had the chance to cook anything new. My days are filled with boiled potatoes mashed with olive oil and sandwiches. Munchies are the order of the day… and today I have munchies for tortilla chips. But, with what???

This is my new go-to no fuss dip for tortilla chips… When I am by myself at home and want just something to much on with chips, my friends gravitate towards the salsa, but I am more of a cheesy girl 😉 I usually go for sour cream to dunk my chips, but one day I was out of sour cream and all I had that resembled something creamy was COTTAGE CHEESE. Yes indeed…

To me, white tortilla chips dunked in cottage cheese are delicious, creamy… and it may not be all that Mexican, but it’s my way to celebrate 5 de Mayo with all of you.


½ cup of cottage cheese
A squirt of lime juice (optional)
Your preferred tortilla chips…

I don’t even know why I include instructions for this because they’re really none…

  1. Just place the cottage cheese in a small pretty bowl and mix in the lime juice, if using.
  2. Dunk the chips in the cheese and enjoy…

I do not feel this needs any salt because the tortilla chips I buy are already salty, but if you are making your own tortilla chips and want to add a bit more salt, go ahead.

    I’ll put it here too. In recipes calling for sour cream, a great substitute that I use (’cause I hate sour cream) I use plain yogurt. I learned it from Weight Watchers cookbook.

        Does it taste better with lime juice??? It tastes different… When I can, I add the lime juice. But, I’ll be honest… most of the time, I just love dipping the tortilla chips in plain ol’ cottage cheese. It almost became an addiction. I had to stop myself from buying cottage cheese for a while because I was almost obsessed with it.

        Try the lime juice… see if you like it. If not, just enjoy it plain just like I do too!!!! Madelyn.
