A great Jalapeño Ranch Dressing that you can use on turkey burgers or use it for dipping! Be warned though, it does come with a little kick!
The one dish we have at least once a week is Turkey Burgers with Fries. I usually put wasabi mayo, tomato and cheese on mine but this time around I wanted something new. This is where this Jalapeño Ranch Dressing recipe comes into play.
When I am not in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes for this food blog, I am just like everyone else, making dishes that are quick & easy to make after a long day at work.
What was a surprise to me is that while this Ranch Dressing was delish on my turkey burger, the wife loved dipping her fries in it instead of ketchup. Go figure.
For another great Jalapeño based condiment, make sure you try my Hot Jalapeño Mustard recipe! Muy Caliente!
I realize that many people out there do not like the taste of Cilantro. If that’s you, you can omit that ingredient. It will not have a significant effect on the overall taste.
Do you ever wonder what makes Jalapeno Peppers so hot? Well check out this article on Wikipedia for more information.
Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
