In the kitchen with Sigona’s: Guac-plus!

In the kitchen with Sigona’s: Guac-plus!

This comes from our friend Michelle, a pediatric physical therapist who specializes in working with infants and toddlers. She’s in amazing shape, already well on her way to reaching her goal of climbing all of the nation’s 14,000-foot mountains. After a full day of patients and a workout with her trainer, Jake, she’ll fix this for herself while she gathers the ingredients for supper with her husband and two teen boys.

Ingredients for one serving:

  • ¼ – ½ Hass avocado (depending on size and how much you love avocados)
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup salsa


Mash the avocado in a bowl. Add the cottage cheese and stir until well-mixed. Top with a layer of salsa.

Serve with chips, toasted pita bread, or vegetables. This gives you a minimum of 15 grams of protein plus calcium and good fat – the flavor is incredible – and it will keep you going till supper!

Cook’s notes: for a change of pace, why not try it with our Pura Vida tomatillo salsa? You’ll find it in the refrigerator case. And if you find yourself in our Stanford store on a Saturday, you might be lucky enough to meet and visit with Ana Maria Valenzuela, who owns the company and makes it for us.

For your Superbowl party, just multiply your ingredients (assume 1/2 serving per person, because you’ll likely have lots of other goodies on the table).

  1. I do 80% of my grocery shopping at Sigona’s. I love your fresh produce, your chicken, lunch meat and cheeses. I also appreciate your give-aways and recipes.
    Keep it all up. You are fantastic.
