A simple blender chipotle ranch dip with plenty of flavor and a delicious spicy kick.

I know I’ve said it before, but football season and football games are ALL about the food for me. I mean, I do enjoy a good football play, but for the most part it’s the game food I get excited about. Cheese, chicken wings, and all the dips. Since I don’t eat this kind of food too often (more of a soups and salads kind of gal), I seriously enjoy it the few times of the year during football games.

I’m allll about the delicious dips and yummy boneless chicken wings. Honey BBQ chicken wings are hands down my favorite! Usually we opt for some sort of bleu cheese or honey mustard dip, so I thought I’d change things up a bit and do a simple chipotle ranch dip. Chipotle and ranch is honestly a perfect complement for honey BBQ wings. The smokey hot flavor of chipotle with the sweet tangy BBQ chicken is delicious. Also, celery in this dip. JUST DO IT!

Another delicious way to use this dip is as a sandwich spread. After using it for our wings, we had quite a bit left-over (you can always halve this recipe) and so I started putting it on sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (98g) regular mayo substitutes not recommended
  • 1/2 cup (106g) sour cream I've used regular and low fat -- not too much difference in flavors
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons ranch salad dressing mix dry
  • 1 tablespoon packed fresh green onions
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried minced garlic or 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce * NOT the entire can

What to dip in the sauce

  • Celery sticks, pepper sticks, chips, honey BBQ wings

Instructions

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  • Blend until completely smooth.
  • Taste and adjust -- adding more seasonings to taste preference or increasing the chipotle peppers to heat preference.
  • Enjoy garnished with green onions.

Recipe Notes

*I buy a 7.5 ounce can and start with 1/2 of 1 single chipotle pepper (remove seeds if super sensitive to heat). Do not add the entire can, start slow and then add more until this dip is to your heat preference. Note that this dip does get hotter after sitting in the fridge overnight or for a few hours.

  1. I pretty much hate all sport. But if the people in my life who are devoted to such weird activities (ahem, husband beast) would make it more about the food I feel I could get on board. I’ll tell him to get right on that.

  2. I made this to smother Chicken Avocado Burritos and it was to die for! Even my mayo-hating husband loved it. Score!

    1. Unfortunately no. The mix will already be “diluted” (the mix is basically before adding buttermilk/mayo) so the dressing won’t be strong enough for the dip.
