    Chilicat's Note:

    This is a Cook's Country recipe that I first tried a few months ago as one of their volunteer recipe testers. It came out in print in their August/September 2009 issue so I am finally free to share it. Their technique of blending cottage cheese with boiling water produces a smooth, creamy dip that tastes just as good as the full-fat stuff. Pair this with reduced fat chips and you've got an (almost) guilt-free snack!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Caramelize onions: Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook until golden, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are deep golden brown and tender, about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Puree cottage cheese and boiling water in blender until no lumps remain. (I pop the water in the microwave on high for a minute or until I can see that it's boiling.) Add half of caramelized onions and blend until completely smooth.
    3. 3
      Transfer to a medium bowl, then whisk in sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and remaining caramelized onions. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
    4. 4
      Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 3 days.
