1 (15 ounce) can
pinto beans, drained and rinsed
nonfat cottage cheese

This was much better than I thought it would be! I added a little more garlic (surprise surprise) and it really was very hummus-like. With some crackers, this is going to make great - healthy! - snacking over the weekend. Thanks!
I wanted to like this but I just didn't. The garlic was overpowering for some reason and I think I squirted in too much lemon juice...
This is a very good alternative to hummous. Very easy to make. I made it w/out the dill and it was fine without. Very good as a spread on bread.
LOVE it! Great spread on a tortilla with a little bit of salsa! Makes for an awesome lunch or small dinner. I was skeptical of this but it was such a great easy spread!
I only made a couple of changes, I substituted low fat cream cheese for the cottage cheese because it was what I had, and adjusted a few spices. Warmed up between two tortillas was exactly what I was looking for. Yummy!
i'm not sure why others mentioned it, but b/c of the ingredients, this is nothing like hummus. an okay little dip that was super easy to make. i used fresh dill b/c i had it on hand & it complemented the cottage cheese well. the over all texture was a bit pasty, requiring me to eat fresh tomatoes and cucumbers w/ it to give it more moisture. it would be nice on a sandwich or a pita, but not alone w/ crackers.
We didn't care for this. The texture is odd - very pasty. There isn't much flavor to speak of. Sorry - I wanted to like it, but this just isn't for us.
My husband and I found this dip to be nothing like hummus. The texture was too pasty, and the flavors did not mix well. Thanks for the recipe. We are always looking for new things to try.
