Chipotle Ranch Chip Dip
Everyone I have ever met thinks the classic Taco Dip Recipe is the best chip dip. Our family and so many others make it for parties and cookouts. This Chipotle Ranch Chip Dip is a spicy southwest twist on the original and I think it might even be better if I do say so myself!
A mixture of sour cream and cream cheese is blended with chipotles in adobo and ranch seasoning. This easy chip dip recipe is topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, sweet corn and shredded pepper jack cheese.
Chipotle Cream Cheese Dip Recipe
The crunchy sweet corn is what really puts it over the top for me. It is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. With the hot chipotle peppers and the sweetness from the corn and tomatoes, the flavors are just right in this sour cream chip dip recipe.
You can adjust to your spice preference with how many chipotles in adobo you add to the mix. I like things relatively spicy, so I opted for 2 chipotles. If you think medium salsa is too spicy, then you might want to opt for just one.
Freezing chipotles in Adobo
When using chipotles in adobo sauce, rarely do I ever use a whole can, much less a half of can. One or two of those bad boys go a long ways. Instead of wasting all the leftovers, chop them up finely and put them in a freezer resealable bag.
Lay the bag flat so it’s a thin layer with no air inside. When you need chipotles for your next recipe, like these Chipotle Shrimp Tacos, you can just break off a piece from the freezer!
Spicy Sour Cream Chip Dip Recipe
Another component to this sour cream chip dip that I wouldn’t skimp on is freshly shredded cheese. There is just something about the creamy cheese shredded right from the block that is a million times better than the powdery store bought shreds.
Obviously we all use the store bought cheese in a pinch when we don’t have a lot of time. If you have the extra couple minutes and are serving this for a party or the big game, definitely take a couple minutes and shred your own cheese!
Best Chip Dip Recipe
This Chipotle Ranch Chip Dip is going to be one of my new go-to recipes for an easy appetizer or snack to bring to a party or serve guests during the summer. It is absolutely perfect for whatever you are doing this Memorial Day weekend!
When I served this easy chip dip at our last Family Olympics, my brother gave me grief for not making the go-to taco dip that my Mom always makes. After he tried it, he begrudgingly admitted that he liked it even better. If you know my family and their unwillingness to try new things, that is a HUGE compliment!.
