Recipe by Emily Johnson
"I'm not a fan of dry taco salad but couldn't ever find a dressing I was a fan of. So I threw together a few things, and voila! A delicious dressing that is worthy of taco salad."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

ranch-style salad dressing
picante sauce, or to taste
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.
eh not impressed.
yummy! I used leftovers for dipping chips in later.
Excellent, just as written!
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.
Added 1/4 cup of Catalina salad dressing and it was great.
Made this dressing to go on my husband's taco salad that he took to work...he loved it. In fact, he called me right after he ate to say how much he enjoyed the salad, and he specifically mentioned that the dressing was the best part. Thanks for the quick, tasty recipe!
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
