Most of my regular readers know that I love dips and sauces. I love how you can really turn anything into a dip. I love chips and veggies and I love dipping them. We always have some sort of sauce or dip stored on the top shelf of our fridge. Lately I have been making lots of recipes with chipotle peppers, and I love the smoky spicy taste they add. I really like the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (found in your international aisle in a small can), as the sauce they are in is so good. I had some left over from making some homemade enchilada sauce so I thought I would put them to good use. Plus, we had pizza on our menu plan for the following day, and I love dipping pizza in different dips. Yum.
This recipe is very simple. You only need a few things and some sort of blender or food processor. I am obsessed with my Food Processor. Best. Gift. Ever. Anyway, you just throw everything in there, hit mix, let it mix for a minute, and then let it chill in the fridge. Now, I know you will be tempted to dig into this dip right away, but please believe me when I tell you, it gets better with time. You don’t need a lot of time, but I would say at least keep this in the fridge for 2 hours, and then enjoy. The flavors really come out in that short time. Even after the day in the fridge the flavors get deeper and spicier…it’s so delicious.
Like I said, this dip is great for whatever. Parties, potlucks, dipping pizza or veggies, chip dip, football games, or just for funsies. It’s great. Trust me, you don’t need a special occasion for this dip.
- 1 package Ranch dressing (not dip) mix
- 1 1/2 cups light sour cream (sometimes I divide this and do half greek yogurt, half sour cream)
- 1 TBS chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (this will get your dip fairly spicy, use less - 1/2 TBS if you don't want a lot of spice)
- 1 tsp adobo sauce from can
- 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup buttermilk
- Chips, veggies, pizza slices, or whatever food you will be dipping into this delicious concoction
- Throw everything into your food processor or blender. Blend for 30 seconds-1 minute. Slowly add buttermilk and mix until you have your desired dipping consistency. The less you use the thicker it will be, and it will thicken up a bit in the fridge.
- When it's all mixed up pour into jar or bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Enjoy!
