Creamy Tex-Mex Dressing

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar-free and dairy free. If you have been reading my blog then you know I switched my diet to improve my health.

It’s summertime which means I don’t like to heat up my house by turning on my stove or my oven. I love making salads with leftover protein. We had leftover Tri-tip roast medium rare. It was so beautiful to look at. It was just my son and me for dinner. I decided to make a Tex-Mex dressing to go with my salad. I did have to revamp my recipe just a tad. Make sure that if you are following a grain-free, refined sugar-free diet to check your labels. One of the reasons I have to make most everything I eat from scratch.

This recipe was inspired by Mexican spices and Fajitas. I like this creamy spicy salad dressing. If you would like to make this as a dip add more sour cream and refrigerate for an hour or more until it thickens. Use with Build a Tex-Mex SaladLettuce Wrapped Chicken Tacos, and Tex-Mex Taco Sauce.

Nutritional Facts are listed below and are based on 1 teaspoon per serving.

1/4 cup homemade mayo

1/4 cup coconut sour cream or store bought sour cream

1 tablespoon Tex Mex Taco Sauce

2 teaspoons Picante sauce or homemade

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/8 teaspoon chipotle pepper

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

lime zest of half a lime

pinch of salt

if you want it spicier add Cholula

 

Mix together the homemade mayonnaise and the coconut sour cream in a bowl large enough to handle a little over 1/2 a cup of dressing. Add L’s Sauce, Picante, cumin, cayenne pepper, and chipotle pepper. Using a microplane mince garlic into the dressing. Add lime juice, lime zest and salt to taste. Use on my Build your own Tex-Mex steak salad.
