Nothing complicated about this one. Just mix up the ingredients that appeal to you & shake up the dressing. This is as pretty as it is flavorful. This goes really well with my 4-Ingredient Easy Enchilada Mac & Cheese! In fact, I served both of these plus my Beef & Veggie Shepherd’s Pie Empanadas to my guests on Easter Sunday. At any rate – just choose which of the fresh ingredients you like & combine them in whatever ratio pleases you & toss in some dressing. Easy-peasy!
Spicy Chipotle Avocado Ranch Dressing
Makes a lot
3/4 cup mayonnaise (or vegan alternative – I used Vegenaise)
1/2 cup sour cream (or vegan alternative)
1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
1/2 large avocado
1 small tomato – diced
2 scallions – chopped
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce – minced
2 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp white or black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dry dill
Blend this shit up in a blender or food processor. Taste & add salt or other seasonings if you care to. Chill – and that means both you & the dressing.
The quantity of each of the suggested ingredients is up to you – depending on how many you are feeding and which ingredients you like more.
