This quick and easy guaca-ranch sauce is perfect for chip dippin’, burger toppin’, or veggie coverin’.
My favorite way to enjoy it is on turkey burgers. We buy Jennie-O ‘all white meat’ turkey burgers from our grocer’s freezer. They are tasty tasty tasty.
Here in cow happy Nebraska people are a little hesitant of non beef burgers. “What, you don’t like beef? You too good for beef? Why use something besides beef?”
Well, disgruntled neighbor, it’s just a nice change from your regular beefy cheeseburger, which, duh, I love too. Not to mention, turkey is healthier. Topped with provolone or pepper jack cheese and you’re in for a real treat. “What, now American cheese isn’t good enough for you? Don’t you love America?!?” …. sigh.
Back to the sauce, this creamy, ranchy, spicy guacamole sauce is just the best. And it is easy to make. All the ingredients go right into your blender! A little chopping, a couple vroom vrooms from the blender, and you’re ready to go.
2 small or 1 large tomato
a hand full of cilantro
chopped onion (optional)
juice of 1 lime
a couple squeezes of ranch
Peel and pit the avocados
halve your tomatoes
chop the jalapenos, remove seeds if desired
into the blender it goes along with the onion and cilantro
squeeze the juice from your lime into your blender cup
pulse the blender a few times
squeeze some ranch and let the blender run on low til all ingredients are mixed and your sauce is creamy.
- leaving the seeds in the jalapeno will make it spicy, use your discretion !;) Here’s a quick video that I watched prior to cutting my first jalapeno: How to Cut a Jalapeno
- the amount of ranch you add is up to you. I would say I add around 1/4 a cup, maybe a 1/3.
- you may need to mix or press down the ingredients while in the blender. Do so carefully!
I like to make this in the morning and let it chill in the fridge until lunch time. And of course it tastes better served out of one of my beautiful vintage yellow pyrex dishes.
Like I said before, spread it on your perfectly American turkey burger, and yum yum. I also like to put some shredded lettuce on it that burger. Sometimes I make bacon, too.
So there you have it! I hope you find this recipe useful and delicious! Tim and I really enjoy it.
