Ingredients in healthy chipotle ranch dressing
We’re taking traditional ranch dressing and lightening up, adding protein and a kick of heat. YUM. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Plain greek yogurt: instead of buttermilk (like traditional ranch dressing recipes) we’re using protein-packed greek yogurt to lighten up this chipotle ranch.
- Garlic powder: nothing beats a little kick of garlic in ranch.
- Onion powder: the secret ingredient for that authentic ranch flavor.
- Lemon juice: you’ll want to add a bit of acidity to balance the dressing. Feel free to use apple cider vinegar, too.
- Dried dill: you can use dried dill or freshly chopped chives in this chipotle ranch.
- Salt: to bring out the flavors in the dressing.
- Chipotle chili powder: I like using chili powder for ease, but feel free to sub a few dashes of chipotle hot sauce.
- Water: to thin the dressing a bit.
