Sandwich Shop Kickin' Ranch Copycat Recipe: Just 5 Ingredients by Donna John

Sandwich Shop Kickin' Ranch Copycat Recipe: Just 5 Ingredients

It's no secret that I love sandwiches. One of my favorite fast-food sandwiches is a veggie sandwich from Jimmy John's. I love dipping it into their Kickin' Ranch. Delicious. After finding a copycat recipe for the spicy ranch dip, I can now make it at home!

All you need to make this creamy kickin' ranch sauce is pickled jalapenos, barbecue sauce, sriracha sauce, prepared ranch dressing and buttermilk. The jalapenos are pureed in a blender to a paste, then the rest of the ingredients are added. So simple!

Dip anything into it – from salads to chicken to french fries to chicken wings to sandwiches. Use your favorite ranch dressing and barbecue sauce for this easy recipe. Remember the flavors of the barbecue sauce will change the end result for the ranch, so don't choose honey barbecue sauce if you don't like sweet ranch. Store the ranch dressing in a container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Recipe Notes

  • If you like a thinner dressing, add some of the liquid from the jalapenos when blending.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the jalapenos into a blender and blend until smooth (like a paste).
  2. Add the barbecue sauce, sriracha and ranch dressing. Blend until smooth. 
  3. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the buttermilk and blend until combined. Store in an airtight container or salad dressing cruet.
