How to Make Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix
I make my own homemade ranch seasoning mix because I like the flavor, but I don’t want all the added chemicals that come from the store bought version. MSG and other additives in store bought mixes make people sick. I make many of my own mixes to keep as many chemicals as possible out of my children and my family.
Make your own seasonings
The most common thing I use this mix for is my world famous Taco Soup. It is definitely a favorite among the kids around here. My family loves it as well. I also make my own taco seasoning mix, and frozen rotel for that soup. Click on the red links to check out the recipes for those too.
In addition to taco soup, the mix can be used to season meats such as chicken, and used to flavor sauces. You can also use the mix to make your own homemade ranch dip or dressing. Check out how below:
To make dip, add 3 Tablespoons of the mixture to 2/3 cup of plain greek yogurt or sour cream.
To make dressing, add 3 Tablespoons of the mixture to 1/3 cup mayonnaise and 1/3 cup milk.
I promise, these will be the best ranch dressing or dip you have ever tasted! I have been told this over and over again. This is one of my most popular and requested recipes. What do YOU use ranch flavoring for?
