Mellie's Mexican Cheese Dip

Here is my sweet cousin (by marriage) Melissa. She is such a wonderful friend to me and we have so much fun together. Melissa is also an amazing cook! Every time I visit her, I get to be the one who is spoiled by her cooking and I always leave with many new tips, tricks and recipes for my kitchen.
Melissa made this dip for me once before J and I were married. I remember making it a few time because I loved it, but then I totally forgot about it until I visited her last month. I am so excited to be reminded about it again! I have made it about 4 times since coming home. It is so easy and a great source of protein (which is great for this pregnant mama)! I also suggest finding the really yummy homemade chips that your grocery store makes and heating them up in the oven to go along with this dip. Warning...don't let the cottage cheese detour you from making this recipe. I promise you will love it!

Mellie's Mexican Cheese Dip
1 pint cottage Cheese
1 tomato
juice of 2 limes
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp kosher salt
 Use a mesh strainer to drain as much liquid from the cottage cheese as possible.
 Dice tomato and pat it down with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
 Mix together lime juice, tomatoes and cilantro.
 Stir in cottage cheese and 1/2 tsp of salt. Taste to add more if needed.
Serve with warm chips!
