Here's a recipe I have been trying to figure out for a long time. You know that white sauce that they give you along with salsa when you sit down at a Mexican restaurant. This is as close as i could come. I cant help but still feel like its missing "something". So please, feel free to experiment and comment.. PS: It's NOT supposed to be a Cheese sauce at all. They do serve cheese sauces at mexican restaurants, but this particular sauce has no cheese. Anyone who has had it, will know what it is because its so good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together with wisk or mixer or blender, etc.
  2. Best if chilled overnight.
  3. Serve with homemade Mexican style tortilla chips.
  4. Note: You may need to experiment with the spices to your own taste. Also, you may like to add more or less ranch dressing to taste, and also more or less milk to the consistency you like. Start out with less, then taste and add as you like. Most Mexican restaurants I've been to are different with the white sauce.
  5. I have also added sour cream to this recipe and it also does well.
  6. Please, if anyone finds a better way or something to add or subtract, please comment and note it!

I had everything but the cream. I used cold stone sweet cream coffe creamer and about a spoonful of sugar, I think it was on point

I haven't tried this yet, but I agree with a couple reviewers about only finding it in Virginia. When I lived in Virginia beach 15 years ago I would inhale this sauce every time I went to a Mexican eatery. I have asked local restaurants here in NJ/PA to no avail. I just went to a Mexican restaurant in Richmond, VA and I actually did a happy dance when they brought white sauce to the table. I can't believe it took me 15 years to Google it, granted Google wasn't the Google it is today! Can't wait to try the recipe!
