In an effort to make a more nutritious fiesta ranch dip, there are just a few substitutions to the standard recipe. This fiesta ranch dip still has the ranch seasoning and rotel, but uses plain greek yogurt for the creamy texture instead of cream cheese. You can add as many vegetables and seasonings as you wish, but there are only 4 ingredients in this recipe to keep things easy. All you do is mix everything together and serve! Enjoy this with tortilla chips or vegetables.
what ingredients do i need?
This recipe only requires 4 ingredients! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Plain greek yogurt – This will create the creamy texture for the dip.
- Ro-Tel – The original Ro-Tel is a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles. I use the original flavor, but there are several flavor options, all of which will work for this recipe.
- Sharp cheddar cheese – Most of the cheese will mix into the dip and a bit will be left to sprinkle on top.
- 1 packet ranch seasoning – Ranch seasoning can either be bought in a bottle or in individual packets. It’s KEY for the ranch part of this fiesta dip!
what substitutions can i make?
- Greek yogurt – To make this dairy free, choose a plant-based yogurt. For an even creamier texture, you can opt for cream cheese or sour cream.
- Cheese – Adding more cheese will make this better. I like to add sharp cheddar cheese, but adding another favorite or more cheese would only help make this dip cheesier.
- Ranch seasoning – I do NOT recommend changing this ingredient! It is KEY to the awesome flavor of the fiesta dip.
- Ro-Tel – I like using a can of Ro-Tel because it keeps things easy. However, you can use fresh vegetables or another kind of canned tomato and chili combo if you prefer!
what equipment do i need?
The only item you need for this recipe is a large bowl!
