Tambi Hankins


A co-worker shared this recipe with me and I've added my own touch to this. It is always a hit! I started making this into a salad dressing to compliment my King Ranch Chicken cassarole.

15 Min


1 bunch
cilantro, fresh
1 pkg
ranch style dressing mix
1 pkg
cream cheese, room temperature
1 jar(s)
pickled jalapenos (medium heat)

Directions Step-By-Step

Wash and towel dry the cilantro.
In a food processor; add the cream cheese, cilantro, ranch dressing mix, and some pickled jalapenos. (start with a small amount and add according to your "heat" indicator). Add a little bit of the pickled jalapeno juice to thin the dip.
For Salad dressing add less pickled jalapenos, but more pickled jalapeno juice. This will still give you the heat, but allows the dressing to have a smooth pouring consistency.
