Sour Cream Substitute for Tacos

So I didn't have any sour cream one night for tacos, but I did have cottage cheese. So this was born, not quite like sour cream, but good just the same.

A really useful recipe for regular cottage cheese eaters for times when they may not have any sour cream on hand! I used to eat a lot of cottage cheese but don't now: just got out of the habit so making this was a reminder that this is a useful and healthy alternative to other higher fat cheeses. I added two teaspoons of lime juice and minced onion and garlic but omitted the hot sauce (personal taste preferences) and enjoyed this on rye bread topped with sliced tomato and basil. Thank you for sharing this recipe, MsSally! Made for EVERY DAY IS A HOLIDAY!

This was quite good, but I feel it didn't have enough punch. I guess that's my fault as it is a sourcream substitute and nothing more. I thought w/the added limejuice and hotsauce it would kick it up a bit. My bad:-(....this is perfect for me, but my DH and DS's would have liked it a bit more HOT...Thanks Sally~
