Hot Cheese Dip with Beans Recipe

hot cheese dip with beans


I'm always looking at different ingredients to reduce calories in my favorite recipes. I was thinking, the other day, about how I could make one of my hot cheese dips with less fat. When I make this Hot Cheese dip I usually add one cup of mayonnaise, yes one cup! That's a lot but it makes the dip creamy. This time I used cottage cheese instead of mayonnaise.

Because I wanted the dip to be nutritious I added black beans and chopped vegetables. My family enjoyed this dip a lot and could not figure out what was the secret ingredient. They were surprised when I told them it was cottage cheese. The dip was gone in no time and I am satisfy that I could create this recipe without losing flavor.
