Registered Dietitian Jackie Topol, MS, RD, CDN


  • 1/2 cup Friendship Dairies® cottage cheese
  • 1/3 cup canned pinto beans
  • 1 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. tortilla strips, or crushed tortilla chips for garnish
  • 1/2 cup mango, finely diced


For the salsa, mix together:

  • 1 tbsp. red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup tomato, chopped and seeded
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Jalapeño, chopped, to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Rinse pinto beans and drain well. Add the beans to a nonstick medium frying pan and roast on medium heat shaking the pan often. The bean will start to roast and pop. Once the beans are slightly crispy transfer to a bowl to cool.
  2. Mix the spices and herbs into the cottage cheese. Layer with the avocado and beans. Top with 2 tbsp. of salsa and a few tortilla strips for crunch.
