Ranch dressing got its start on a real dude ranch in California. Punch up the western original with green salsa, green chiles, jalapenos and cilantro for more color and spice. Serve the dip along with your favorite wings to feed a crowd. —Lindsay Duke, Goodrich, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1-1/3 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup salsa verde
  • 3 tablespoons canned chopped green chiles
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
  • Hot cooked buffalo-style chicken wings
  • Celery sticks

Directions

  1. Place the first 7 ingredients in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Chill until serving. Serve with chicken wings and, if desired, celery.
buttermilk
To substitute for each cup of buttermilk, use 1 Tbsp. white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir, then let stand 5 min. Or, use 1 cup plain yogurt or 1-3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar plus 1 cup milk.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
