Creamy Chipotle Dressing

I was in a huge rush last week and we needed something quick and healthy from the grocery store. *Between wrap parties, the gym, self-defense training and filling seed orders (and the Chiropractic office) it's been a busy year so far.*
I'm linking up with the very first Tuesdays with a Twist!


So I rushed into the grocery store, grabbed a baked chicken, salad greens and a jar of Creamy Chipotle Ranch Dressing.  YUM!!!  We loved the dressing...Until I read the ingredients.  YUCK!  It was full of chemicals.

I usually make my own dressing anyway.  
My husband LOVES the Apple Cider Viniagrette but like I said, we were in a hurry.  I made a few modifications to the recipes I found online.  Let me know what you think!


Creamy Chipotle Dressing
adapted from Home with Mandy
Ingredients:
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mayonnaise

½ cup plain yogurt
¼ cup milk
½ cup water
4 small chipotle in adobe, minced
6 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro leaves
1 large lime, juiced



Directions:
Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth.
Store in a glass jar.  This is why I Save my Jars!

*Use all milk if you prefer.  I don't like my dressing thick so feel free to reduce the liquids*

THIS is the dressing I used for the Veggie Burger Tacos!

Depending on the day I'm linking up HERE and Tuesdays with a Twist!

  3. That seems like it will work. I do the same thing sometimes, but once I look at the ingredients I do not want it. Joining from Healthy tues hop.

  4. One of the most difficult things for me to give up was bottled salad dressing. Pioneer woman saved me with a great, natural recipe for Ranch dressing. Yours looks pretty darned good, too!

  8. Sounds delicious! Saw your post @ The NY Melrose Family Whimsy Wednesday link party. I will have to try this because I am right there with you...yuck on store-bought dressings!! The only one my kids will touch is Ranch and that's just because we're from Texas. I also have a creamy green dressing on my blog that you might like. Have a great day!
