Homemade Buttermilk Ranch or Chipotle Ranch

Victoria Ross


My son loves Ranch dressing so this is quick and easy to whip up and better than store bought with all those preservatives and things you can't pronouce! Just be mindful of the date on your buttermilk because that will be the expiration date of your dressing. Great for salad dressing or a ranch dip for all kinds of things!

How to Make Homemade Buttermilk Ranch or Chipotle Ranch


  1. Mix all ingredients in a blender ( I use my Ninja), scraping down sides until well blended.
  2. Pour dressing in a pourable container (I used two cleaned out Snapple bottles!) Refrigerate for at least 12 hours before using to help flavors blend and mixture thicken a bit. Can be used right away if neccesary. Store in refrigerator. Shake bottle well before each use. Enjoy!!
