Farmgirl's Fiesta Dip

fiesta dip

Here's something I made a long time ago (for a Tupperware party) but never got around to tell you about. I have a massive backlog that I'm working through. Sometimes people ask me if I'll run out of things to blog about. Simple answer: no. I really don't think so. Ever.

Anyway. This is a nice, healthy dip, a nice change from the much fattier ones like guacamole (although oooh, yummy!) and it's a definite winner from Farmgirl Fare. I've made a few small changes, so head over to her site for her original recipe, and her story about tortilla factory tours!

Farmgirl's Fiesta Dip

500 g cottage cheese (diet versions are totally ok)
4-5 large tomatoes, diced
2 large red or yellow peppers, diced
3-4 scallions, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 small fresh chilli, minced
1 bunch fresh coriander, shredded
1 tsp worcestershiresauce
1 tsp cumin

Mix everything, and ideally let it sit for a few hours before serving. It will probably be a little fluid at the bottom of the bowl, so carefully pour that out before serving. And while you could serve this with more vegetables, it was delicious with tortilla chips. Just so you know.

I tried a similar dip at an italian reastaurant the other day but it was more liquid - tomato juice I suppose. That was delicious. This dip looks to be even more tasty.

Your dip looks wonderful, Anne! I'm so glad you enjoyed the recipe. I totally hear you on the blog post backlog thing. The other day I came across some photos of a recipe I'd forgotten I'd even made--let alone photographed. What's funny, though, is that every time I start to feel really behind, I tell myself that I just need to put up shorter, more frequent recipe posts--like Anne does! : )

Have a great week. xo

A healthier dip is definately a good alternative this time of the year. I love both cilantro and cottage cheese so the mix sounds delicious!
