Storage

Extra taco dip can be stored covered in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. I like to use the same container the cottage cheese came in. Option to enjoy it as a dip or stuffed in sweet peppers. Keep in mind that shredded lettuce and avocado are best if added as needed. These items tend to wilt or brown over time, so adding it fresh each time is best.
