  • I mix the dry packets in potatoes, rice, veggies, as a meat or fish seasoning. Mixed with butter/olive oil and brushed on bread prior to grilling or broiling. I buy lots of the store brand (not Hidden Valley)-it's cheaper and just as good.

  • Ooh! I make yummy chicken fingers by dipping them in ranch dressing then crushed up Goldfish crackers. Then you just bake them. =)

  • What's funny is the ad on my page is for Hidden Valley Ranch. LOL. I made this super yummy baked chicken that I got off the bottle. Maybe try their website for a list of recipes?

  • As odd as it sounds I use it instead of an egg when I mix up hamburgers. I also put it in chicken salad ( just cut back on the mayo). You can use it instead of an egg when breading chicken (yummy!).

  • I have used Ranch as a salad dressing and also in tacos or chicken wraps instead of sour cream.

  • Mix cooked chicken pieces, cooked egg or shell noodles, pkg. frozen vegetables, ranch dressing and taco sauce. Simmer on the stove for 10-15 minutes.

  • Mashed potatoes, burgers, meatloaf, I make a mexican casserole that it's really yummy on, and as weird as it sounds there are some kinds of pizza that it's really good on, and there's a local pizza place that uses Ranch in place of sauce on a couple of their specialty pies!
