Snowy Chili Cheese Dip

This Snowy Chili Dip is such an easy appetizer! Stir together some cottage cheese, salsa, avocado, green chilies, and scoop it up with some Fritos.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound container of cottage cheese, any fat content you like
  • 1 4-oz can diced green chiles, or 7 ounce can, slightly drained
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1-2 avocados, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper

Optional:

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • sliced or chopped jalapenos
  • green onions, chopped
  • fresh lime juice
  • 1 to 2 9-oz. package Fritos, (the scoop kind)

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, green chilies, chopped tomato, salsa, avocado, salt, chili powder, and a dash of cayenne pepper. (You can drain the green chilies all the way if you want. I usually just open the can and use the lid to strain out the liquid right at the top.)
  • Stir in the cilantro, jalapenos, green onions, and a few squeezes of fresh lime juice. These are all optional ingredients.
  • Serve in a bowl with Frito scoops for dipping!
  • Refrigerate leftovers.

Notes

Fritos come in pretty small bags, like 9 ounces. Depending on how heavy of a dipper you are, you may need 2 bags.
