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.

notes:

  • 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.
