It's become my mission to spice up our side dishes and make them more exciting, including our salads. I've always loved the flavor of a spicy ranch dressing or dip so this one was right up my alley for adding that kick of flavor to a Tex Mex salad.

Recipe by Kalyn @ Kalyn's Kitchen

Makes 1 1/4 cup.

1/2 of 28 gram (1 oz) packet of Ranch Dip mix
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 tsp chipotle chile powder

Put all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. Store in a resealable jar in the refrigerator for two weeks.

I absolutely loved this dressing and thought it added great flavor to an otherwise boring side salad.

  • corn
