Jalepeno Spinach Dip

Here’s a recipe I found online which I plan to try.  It looks wonderful.    I got it from this site.  http://foodfunlife.blogspot.com/2013/01/high-protein-jalapeno-spinach-dip.html

 

This spinach dip is perfect for anytime. Not only is it super duper delicious, but it’s high protein, low fat, low carb, and contains lots of veggies! The trick is using cottage cheese instead of sour cream or mayo. I know how it sounds, but don’t scoff until you try it! I promise it will surprise you.

High Protein Jalapeno Spinach Dip (adapted from Lindsey Isham)
2 c. cottage cheese 1 box (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed of excess liquid 1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped 1/2 bell pepper, finely chopped (I used yellow) 5 cloves garlic, minced 1 T. onion powder 1 T. minced jalapeno (I used bottled) 1/2 t. oregano 1/4 t. salt (more or less to taste) pinch dry dill, optional pinch black pepper

In a blender, blend cottage cheese until smooth. (I used a magic bullet blender and did it in two batches.)
 Combine smooth cottage cheese with all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least a few hours or overnight.
 Serve with any kind of chips or veggies.
