This is by far one of the tastiest salads I have made. I love southwestern flavors on just about anything! When I saw the Recipe ReDux theme for January is “Start Smoking in the New Year”, I knew I wanted to do another recipe using my beloved chipotle peppers ! So here I bring you…Southwestern Cobb Salad with Chipotle Ranch Dressing!
Back in September I posted my Smoky Chipotle Sweet Potato Salad (click to check it out!) where I gave some tips on pureeing and freezing a whole batch of chipotle peppers for future use. Well to make this awesome Chipotle Ranch Dressing, all I had to do was grab a cube out of my frozen stash. Easy!
It’s been a little while! We were visiting my brother in Austin, TX for a week and it’s taken some time getting back into the routine. We had so much fun hanging out with him, exploring Austin and eating our way through the incredible restaurants and food trucks! I bet you’ve never imagine a dietitian would eat Lucy’s Fried Chicken, a “Pumpkinator” cupcake from Hey Cupcake or Texas BBQ When in Rome, right? Seriously though, when you find food that is authentic, homemade and looks amazing you must give it a try! (or at least share!) It’s always fun to discover new places and cuisines that you’d never find at home.
