May 24, 2011: Chipotle Garlic Ranch Dressing Recipe

Bookmark and Share

Just about everyone loves ranch dressing… but if you’re looking for a semi-homemade with a bit more zing, try this recipe.

Chipotle Garlic Ranch Dressing

1 package dry ranch dressing mix
1 cup light mayonnaise
1 cup 2% milk
1 t. freeze-dried garlic
1 red chile pepper in adobo sauce, minced
1 t. adobo sauce

Mix all ingredients together in a jar and shake well. Refrigerate and let sit for an hour or so before using, so the flavors meld and the dressing thickens.

Tip: Freeze-dried garlic is a new product I’ve recently found at Safeway. The brand they carry is Litehouse. This stuff is fantastic – it’s got a great, very strong garlic flavor. If you wish to substitute, use one large, fresh crushed garlic clove or two teaspoons of bottled, minced garlic.
