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 ½ 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 - ½ TBS if you don't want a lot of spice
- 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can
- ¼ cup to ½ 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!

When I'm serving appetizers I always have to have a dip because they are a great make-ahead meal. I tend to see the same dip recipes over and over again but I've not seen this one before. It looks delicious and I love the idea! 🙂
This might be good drizzled on a sandwich! Pinning. 🙂
Yes, that would be sooo good! I can imagine dipping a warm panini into it too, YUM!
Like this change up! Yum.
is the ranch dressing mix a dry seasoning type envelope of mix? Just curious if that is what you mean.
I use the envelope mix that is specifically dressing, not 'dip'. Hope that helps!
Is the buttermilk a dry consistency or liquid?
It is liquid, but you could make buttermilk with the dry powder by following the directions on that container, then adding it to the recipe.
What a delicious recipe! Whips up really quick. Looking forward to drizzling it over our fish tacos this evening.
Wow I bet that was delicious on top of those tacos! Feel free to swing by some extras at my house 😉
Can you substitute the buttermilk?
I haven't tried any subs, so I'm not sure how it would turn out!
