Chipotle Ranch Dressing

My husband and I have been on a spicy kick lately, so when I saw The Pioneer Woman make this on her show I knew I had to give it a try.  She served hers with raw veggies, I made mine a dressing.  This definitely has a kick to it.  I love the smokey taste of chipotle but they can be very spicy.  Luckily the other ingredients cool it down a bit and the flavor just gets better as it sits in the refrigerator.

Loads of flavor here, very herby and fresh tasting.  Creamy and smooth texture.  Love the tang from the vinegar and the slight reddish color the chipotle's give it.

Chipotle Ranch Dressing
Recipe from The Pioneer Woman

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chives, minced
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • dash hot sauce
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup buttermilk, or more depending on whether you're using it as a dip or a dressing.
  1. Place all the ingredients together in a bottle you can shake, or a dish and whisk together until smooth.  Keep adding buttermilk until it is at the consistency you wish.  Serve as a dip with raw veggies or a dressing.
