Quick salad here folks…
Ever tried chipotles?
Not the burito place, actual chipotle peppers.
Chipotles are simply smoked jalapenos. And that smoke makes a flavorful world of difference.
For the best southwestern ranch dressing, all you need is a couple chipotles (find them in a can in the Mexican section of the grocery store) and an 8 ounce bottle of ranch dressing.
Add the 2 peppers and the whole bottle of ranch dressing to a mini food processor, along with 2 teaspoons of the chipotle liquid, and hit pulse for just a second.
Deliciousness in just 1 second.
Mix this with sour cream for a cool, smokey dip for veggies or taquitos, or toss a couple of spoonfuls with a bag of mixed greens……
….and layer on a plate.
To top this spicy salad we usually just use whatever we have in the fridge. Grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, and bacon are pretty standard for a Cobb salad. Avocado, corn, and diced jicama (a Mexican root vegetable somewhere between a potato and an apple) give it a little more of a southwestern flavor.
Extremely simple salad,
…….and guaranteed delicious.
Looks delicious! Thank you 😉
The pictures were so pretty, Tracie, I couldn’t wait to post it !!!!!
Yummy looking! I love the added crunch from the jicama, too.
Same here, wanted to add something a little different…it cuts the heat fom the chipotles a little bit too
