Sweet and tangy mustard dressing, makes any salad really delicious! Used cider vinegar and upped the amount to 1/2 cup. Fantastic!

I am addicted to this all over again. We used to have a Pancho's here in Tupelo many many years ago. I made this dressing a few days ago and love it. I have tried it on salad, taco salad and today mixed in some bean dip. I am hooked. I only used half the sugar and it turned out perfect. It tastes pretty close the day you make it but tastes just like it after sitting overnight in the frig...

I am so glad to find this! I was raised in West Memphis, literally two blocks from the original Pancho's. From the time I was 10 or 11 years old through my teenage years, my friends and I would walk up there and get tacos and the wonderful cheese and hot dip. I still have family in the area and every time I go home Pancho's is a planned destination. I also stop by Kroger on the way out of town to stock up on taco sauce, hot dip, and cheese dip, but now if I run out before I can make another trip I don't have to do with it. It is the BEST thing in the world on tacos and taco salads, and I've tried several times to duplicate it from the ingredients listed on the container, but haven't been successful. Thankyou!

I grew up on this stuff, and I'm addicted. I've been searching for a recipe forever. Truthfully, I thought it had way too much much mustard. But I'll be eternally grateful to you for providing a 'base' on which to experiment! P.S. You might want to check out my Pancho's Cheese Dip. It's the real deal!

I love the Panchos dressing. I made this recipe and it seems a bit sweet. I will try it again with less sugar.

Can't wait to try this. My father-in-law makes an awesome salsa and he always said it was from some restaurant called Pancho's. They use to live in Memphis, so I now assume that is where the recipes hails from. Thanks for helping me put together the pieces!

You have totally made my day. I haven't lived in Memphis for over 20 years and have no people there to help me. I really was beginning to think this dressing was a figment of my imagination. After reading everyone else's reviews, now I realize it was real!! Thank you so much for this.

Having grown up in Memphis, TN, and enjoying Pancho's food for numerous years, this certainly is a reminder. It is VERY close to the original. They used it on everything, loved it on the tacos. For thewub, you can still buy this dressing in the grocery store Kroger. My mother still lives in the area and I have her mail it to me a few times a year. Now I don't have to - Thank you, thank you, thank you Stephie! As an aside, if you use olive oil, light, it will give it the greener appearance.
