  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • Tbsp milk plus more if needed
  • 1 Hidden Valley Ranch packet
  • 1 Chipotle pepper from can, diced small
  • 1½ - 2 tsp adobo sauce from can (to heat preference)
  • 2 tsp lime juice


  • Dice 1 chipotle pepper (1 pepper, not 1 can!) from can
  • Whisk together all of the ingredients. Adjust amount of adobo sauce from can to fit your heat sensitivity
  • If dip is too thick, add more milk as needed


This dip is made thick enough so you can enjoy it right away. It will thicken in the fridge- add more milk later if it’s too thick.
