Skinny Chipotle Ranch Dressing combines Greek yogurt and light mayo with all the southwest flavors. This dressing is the perfect topper for salads, tacos, burrito bowls, and even for dipping fries and veggies!
Ya’ll. We are OBSESSED with this dressing. I’ve been making it regularly…like as in weekly. Because it’s not only great on everything, but it’s pretty light too. Take a quick peek at the nutrition label below!
Ingredients needed for Skinny Chipotle Ranch Dressing:
Let’s go shopping. You should be able to find all of these ingredients at your regular grocery store.
- Greek Yogurt – Grab some plain Greek yogurt. I usually buy two of the 5.3 oz. containers.
- Mayo – Go with whatever mayo you prefer. I like the mayo with olive oil.
- Cilantro – You will need one bunch, but won’t use it all.
- Chipotle Peppers – You can buy the whole chipotle peppers with adobe sauce (in a can) and de-seed them, or just buy the diced chipotles in a jar. I occasionally buy La Costena Diced Chipotle Peppers and keep them on hand for a lot of other recipes. If using the whole peppers, I usually use one small pepper (with seeds) and then a tablespoon of just the adobe sauce.
- Lime – Use more if you like a more liquid-y dressing, and less if you like it thicker.
- Spices – All you need is paprika, onion powder, salt and pepper.
How to make Skinny Chipotle Ranch Dressing:
- Combine all of the wet ingredients in a small mixing bowl – the Greek yogurt, mayo, and diced chipotles.
- If using the whole chipotles, slice them in half, and remove the seeds. Then dice them up, and spoon some of the chipotles and some sauce into the bowl. (I like this a bit spicier, so I use the seeds.)
- Chop the cilantro finely. Measure out a packed 1/3 cup (or more!).
- Squeeze the lime over the bowl, using your hands or a citrus press.
- Add the seasonings.
- Mix well, and spoon the dressing into a mason jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
Pro-Tip: If the dressing is to thick and you want to drizzle it on a salad, you can thin it with extra lime juice or even some cold water.
This skinny recipe can be so many things. A dressing, a dip, or a sauce.
