    dr_kaley's Note:

    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!

    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients together with wisk or mixer or blender, etc.
    2. 2
      Best if chilled overnight.
    3. 3
      Serve with homemade Mexican style tortilla chips.
    4. 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. 5
      I have also added sour cream to this recipe and it also does well.

      Please, if anyone finds a better way or something to add or subtract, please comment and note it!

      The ones from the restaurants in Oklahoma are a modified blue cheese dressing with olives/with pimentos and dill pickles in a mayo/buttermilk base. Hope this helps...

      I tried your recipe hoping to duplicate a white sauce I've had before at a couple of small-town Mexican restaurants in Oklahoma. The version I've had is very white with a few pale orange and green flecks in it. I thought it had ranch in it, which is why I tried your recipe. I did, however, make a couple of modifications: I left out the cumin because I thought that would change the color of the dip too much. I also substituted sour cream for half of the Miracle Whip, and the taste of Miracle Whip was still too strong for me. The overall flavor was similar to the white dip I've had before, but not close enough for me to make this recipe as-is again. My mom liked it but said it didn't taste the same as the restaurant version. Thanks for posting :)
