Flavor packed southwest ranch greek yogurt sauce that’s perfect for spreading on burgers, sandwiches, wraps, or dipping veggies into. You’re only two minutes away from being in southwest ranch flavor heaven!
So we all know those little ranch-flavored seasoning packets.
Yep, they’re delicious but not so good for you.
Why You Should Make Your Own Southwest Ranch Seasoning
Seasoning packets are usually loaded with salt, preservatives, and artificial ingredients that you definitely don’t want to be eating. Bleh.
It’s so easy to make your own seasoning packets with the spices you have in your cabinet right now! This southwest ranch greek yogurt sauce doesn’t have any crazy ingredients in it or anything you can only find online. I promise it’s super simple, and probably the easiest recipe on my blog!
What I love most about this greek yogurt sauce is that it’s free of junk and all ingredients that I have no idea what they are. Like natural flavor. What the heck is natural flavor anyways? I hate when the ingredient list includes that.
It’s full of big flavors that all blend together to create a slightly spicy, super creamy, southwest ranch flavor that I think could easily rival any of those little packets you buy at the grocery store.
The best part is that it literally only takes two minutes to make! I used a 5 oz cup of plain greek yogurt and added all the seasonings to it. Mix it up until it has a smooth consistency, and that’s it! You can even leave it in the disposable yogurt cup if you’re serving it right away. Otherwise, store it in an airtight container in the fridge.
What Can I Put Southwest Ranch Greek Yogurt Sauce On?
We like to load up our favorite Clinton Kelly sweet potato burgers with the southwest ranch sauce, add it to sandwiches, wraps, tacos, use it as a creamy salad dressing, or dip raw veggies in it. So many delicious options!
If you’re just looking for the southwest ranch flavor, you could omit the greek yogurt and just use the seasonings. Rub it on chicken or sprinkle it on sweet potatoes before baking, the flavors are perfect all by themselves.
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp paprika
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
- (1) 5oz cup plain greek yogurt
- Add all seasonings to greek yogurt.
- Mix until everything is combined, and the yogurt is smooth. If it tastes gritty, keep stirring!
- Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
You could also use sour cream instead of greek yogurt, but I try to cut the fat in most recipes I make, so I prefer greek yogurt. Travis and I really love this southwest ranch greek yogurt sauce, we put it on everything!
I’ve tried making it with sour cream, and neither of us could taste a difference. So if I had to choose, I would definitely go with the greek yogurt version just because I can eat more of it and not feel the tiniest bit of guilt!
