You won't believe how fresh this Chipotle Ranch Dip Mix tastes.  Puts the bottled versions to shame on chips or fresh veggies.  Smokey jalapeno spices up ranch perfectly in this Chipotle Ranch Dip Mix. Delicious whether you serve it at Christmas parties as a chip dip (pictured) or veggie dip.


Salad Dressing:  Substitute milk or buttermilk for the sour cream to make a great southwestern salad dressing (pictured).    See the CHIPOTLE RANCH DRESSING page for more delicious ways to use this dressing.

Sandwich Spread:  Use prepared dip, or combine mix with just mayonnaise.  It’s unbelievably good on crab cake sandwiches (pictured), and even fries.  This is a simple way to kick up an already well loved food, a great way to make you famous for your Christmas party food.  Make this even quicker and easier by using purchased crab cakes.  TIP:  See the READY MADE page for where to purchase ready-to-serve crab cakes.  Crab cake sandwiches with our spicy spread are perfect for your Christmas Eve buffet.

If you want to make your own crab cakes and need a recipe, we use a recipe based on the original Old Bay® recipe.  It’s pretty easy, and really does taste as good as many of the finer restaurants.  See MADE FROM SCRATCH for our recipe.  McCormick now owns Old Bay.  While they still sell Old Bay seasoning by the jar, they now also sell it in packages that provide enough spice to make four crab cakes.  The recipe is on the package, and can be found online too. Here’s the link:  McCORMICK’S OLD BAY® CRAB CAKES.

TIP:  Both the Old Bay® recipe and the frozen crab cakes provide directions for baking and sautéing.  We have found that sautéing works best for both, BUT, the cakes stay together best if they are cold or frozen when they go into a pan with sizzling oil and are cooked on medium heat (about 350°).  They should be done in 4-5 minutes (2-3 on the first side and 2 when turned over).  Wait to turn them until they release themselves from the oil; they’re ready then and won’t stick or come apart.  If you’re going to bake your crab cakes, be sure to baste the top sides with oil or butter before putting them in the oven; it will help with browning on the tops.
