Low-Calorie Cafe Rio Dressing

Submitted by Danica Nelson

1 packet of dry ranch dressing mix
1 10-oz. can of green enchilada sauce
1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/4 cup light mayonnaise (35 cal. per Tbsp.)
1 cup 1% milk
1 bunch cilantro, chopped (I don't use the stems, but you could)
Jalapeno to taste (I use about 3-4 slices from a jar)
Juice of one lime
Garlic, salt, Splenda to taste

Blend in your blender (the ranch dressing mix will thicken the dressing). When well mixed, add water to bring mixture to the 4-cup line. This will make 64 Tbsp. at 9 calories each!  Yummy on Mexican-style salads, burritos, fresh tortillas, etc.
