Chipotle Ranch Dressing Recipe Ingredients

You just need 8 ingredients to make this recipe:

  • Greek yogurt and mayonnaise – Traditional ranch dressing recipes typically use sour cream or buttermilk as a base. I don’t often have those ingredients on hand, so I use a mix of Greek yogurt and mayo instead. They give this dressing the same creamy texture and delicious tangy flavor.
  • Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce – For smoky, spicy chipotle flavor.
  • Apple cider vinegar – For extra tang.
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, and dried dill – They give the dressing its savory, ranch-y flavor.
  • And sea salt – To make all the flavors pop!

Place all the ingredients in a food processor, and whizz to combine. When the dressing is smooth and creamy, season to taste. That’s it!

    This was fantastic! I made it as a dipping sauce for fried pickles. Even my husband – who can’t handle anything spicy – absolutely loved it.

      I’m so glad it was a hit! It would be so good with fried pickles, yum.

    How long will this keep in the fridge? Can you make a double or triple batch and use it over the course of a week or two?

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Judy, I would use it within 1 week, I think 2 might be pushing it.
