This recipe uses Spice House’s green chile ranch dressing mix, which you can find on their website. It has a variety of spices and seasonings including bell pepper, green chiles, garlic, onion, pepper, dill weed, lemon juice, chives.

What peppers does it use?

The seasoning mix has jalapeños, New Mexican green chiles, and bell peppers to create a light heat and well-rounded flavor. I suggest including chopped fresh chili peppers in your ranch dip to kick up the spice level.

Spicy green chile ranch dip

This mildly spicy ranch dressing is perfect as a veggie or wing dip!


  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp Spice House green chile dressing mix
  • 1/2 tsp green chile flakes jalapeño, serrano, or other


  • Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl


Feel free to adjust the quantities to your taste. You can add more or less of the powder and chile flakes, and you can adjust the type of peppers for something hotter or milder.

Ingredient swaps for buttermilk

I always have mayo and sour cream on hand, but I definitely don’t keep my fridge stocked with buttermilk. If you want to skip the buttermilk, simply replace it with 1/2 cup milk and 1 tsp of either vinegar or lemon juice. This adds the same creaminess and tang as buttermilk, without the extra trip to the store.
