Southwestern Ranch? (Buffalo Wild Wings)

Does anyone know how to make something similar to the Southwestern Ranch sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings? My girlfriend loves it, but they don't sell it bottled and I can't find a similar salad dressing or sauce anywhere!

Thanks!

Edit: I put it in the Sauces category because that's generally what it's used for. I don't think it'd be good as a salad dressing...

That's a good idea. It's not spicy at all, though. That's why she likes it. I might try mixing in some sweet barbecue sauce or something instead. Thanks for your help! Let me know if anyone knows for sure, or has another idea.

Todd Wilbur has hacked the recipe. But it will cost you 79 cents to read it. As I haven't bought that recipe, I can't say that the sauces he covers include the specific sauce you want. I also can't directly link to the recipe, but here's how to get to it and buy it.

Go to www.topsecretrecipes.com

From the navigation menu on the left, click Recipes

You now have a choice. Either select Buffalo Wild Wings from the brand drop down list or type it into the search field.

Now click the recipe you want to look at. These are taste clones, not necessarily how they are made originally.

You'll have to agree to a user license. Basically to repsect his copyright, not share the recipes and so on.

After that, you should see the recipe and the reviews and tweaks of others who have made that recipe.

Good luck

I checked out several websites, and Southwestern Ranch Sauce seems to be a mixture of equal parts Ranch Dressing and Salsa. One source called for using Honey Mustard BBQ sauce instead of the salsa.

The website requires flash which isn't on my work computer, I'll check it out at home. Thanks!

Hmm, that actually sounds closer to the taste I'm looking for than barbecue sauce. I think I'll try both.

Southwestern Ranch

I don't know the real recipe either. But what I've done before was get an electronic food chopper/processor (like those little small black and decker ones in walmart for $10)...

Pour in desired amount of ranch dressing (i prefer ken's)... Then add in some onion and green chilis to your discretion. You can usually find a small can of green chilis in the area where taco stuff is in the grocery store). I also add in some Red Hot buffalo wing sauce. Its not tabasco, but adds a great flavor to the sauce. Then just mix/chop for a few seconds.
