Modified this based on what I had in the house and it turned out great! I didn't have any picante sauce, so I used half a can of southwest tomatoes (diced tomatoes, green chilies, lime and cilantro), fat free sour cream, dry ranch seasoning and a couple packets each of Taco Bell chipotle sauce and fire sauce.

This dressing is amazing!! I used fat free sour cream and light ranch with taco sauce instead of Picante sauce. This was delicious and only counted up to 64 calories with a tsp of milk to thin it down a little. Thanks so much for this great recipe

Delicious dressing - that will be made again! It worked well served over 'Lazy Katie's Taco Salad' from AR. I had homemade ranch dressing that I used in the recipe. I mixed everything up in the morning and gave it a quick stir before serving. My hubby and I both enjoyed this. Thanks, Emily for sharing.
