Hi guys!

If you’ve been a long time blog reader you’ve heard me gush before about my love of Mexican food.  I could seriously eat a breakfast burrito, tacos for lunch and get enchiladas for dinner and then repeat it over again the next day without batting an eye.  The Hubs knows to really cheer me up on a bad day to offer to pick up burritos on the way home from work.  He’s a good man! 🙂

I know that eating that kind of food at a restaurant all the time probably wouldn’t be the best for me though!  That’s the main reason you’ll find so many healthified Mexican recipes on my site.  Because my love of Mexican food runs so deep that I have to find healthier ways to cook it.  With that in mind, I decided to create a second Mexican themed salad dressing (also try my Creamy Avocado Lime Dressingto use on salads.  My Healthy Chipotle Lime Ranch Dressing turned out so good that it’s already gone on lots of salads… plus burrrito bowls, tacos AND even pastas!

How to make my Healthy Chipotle Lime Ranch Dressing recipe…

The ingredients for this Healthy Chipotle Lime Ranch Dressing are pretty simple… greek yogurt, lime, spices and milk to thin it down.  The real flavor comes in with using some of the sauce from the Chipotle in Adobo Sauce.  You can find the little can in the Mexican section of your grocery store or HERE.

If you haven’t used them yet, they are just little peppers in this bright red sauce.  It has this incredibly smokey and delicious flavor that’s hard to find anywhere else.   They look like they will be super spicy, but I don’t think they are!

For this recipe I used a few tablespoons of just the sauce in the jar…. not the actual peppers.  If you want a more intense pepper flavor add a whole pepper to the mix and give it a whirl in your blender or food processor.  On the same note, it you like less spice use a little less of the sauce… but don’t be too stingy… the flavor is WORTH IT!

You can keep the rest of the can in the fridge or freezer for your next batch… they keep a long time.

You can also adjust this recipe to make either a thick sauce or dip or a thinner salad dressing!  Just add as much milk as you need until you hit the sweet spot for your recipe.

Any way you make it this Healthy Chipotle Lime Ranch Dressing recipe is super delicious.  It’s like my Healthy Greek Yogurt Ranch... only better!

    Mexican is certainly my go to flavor! Everything is good Mexican. I love making home made ranch. I don’t believe there is ever a reason to buy it.

    That sounds like a lovely sounding recipe, sadly Mexican food really is not that well known or frequently seen in Europe, I must spend more time trying to hunt down ingredients.

    Those cans of chipotle in adobo are awesome, it adds so much flavor. I’ll have to try this the next time we are making taco salads.

    Chipotles in adobo add the best flavor!! I thought it would be super spicy but the spicy yet smoky flavor are amazing in so many foods. I can’t wait to try this dressing out.
