Chipotle Ranch Dressing – Spend With Pennies
Chipotle Ranch Dressing is a favorite dressing or dip perfect for salads, fries, or even pizza crusts!
A simple mixture of mayo and sour cream is combined with our favorite ranch inspired seasonings and chipotle peppers.
What’s in Chipotle Ranch Dressing?
BASE: Mayonnaise, sour cream, and milk give the dressing its rich and smooth base. You can swap out the sour cream for low carb Greek yogurt.
SEASONINGS: Fresh lime juice and cilantro add a bright fresh flavor. I also like to add parsley, garlic, and onion powder.
CHIPOTLE PEPPERS: These peppers are smoked dried jalapenos and they can be purchased in a can in adobo sauce. This makes them easy to chop and add to your favorite dressings and sauces. They have a nice smoky flavor and a bit of heat.
Where to buy Chipotle Peppers
Small cans of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are found in most supermarkets with the Latin or Mexican ingredients. You can also get them online.
SUBSTITUTIONS: If you don’t have chipotle peppers, substitute a little bit of dried chipotle powder or even other diced peppers with a bit of smoked paprika. Mild diced green chiles or finely chopped jalapenos can be used.
How to Make Chipotle Ranch Dressing
It doesn’t get much easier than two very simple steps:
- Whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
- Pour into a container and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
Dip Tip To turn this from a dressing to a dip, skip on the milk. This will make the mixture nice and thick.
