Red Pepper Cheese Spread

Marge's cousin, Vesko, comes to visit from Bulgaria every few years.  He loves to cook and made this spread a few times while here.  A little like pimiento cheese but creamier because of the addition of cottage cheese, it's a nice spread for crackers and vegetables.  I added extra tabasco sauce to mine because I like the extra zip.

2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped roasted red peppers
1 cup cottage cheese (I smashed this up before adding)
1/4 cup mayo
1/8 tsp tabasco sauce ( or more if desired)

Combine all ingredients thoroughly and chill.
