This was great stuff. I doubled the recipe using Sargento's reduced fat 4 cheese blend with Fat Free Cream Cheese and Corona Light Beer. After reading the other reviews about the hidden valley seasoning I kept it to half an envlope even though I doubled and the seasoning was perfect for us. Thanks for this tasty, easy keeper !

I made this dip today in advance to take as my part of a planned NY Eve dinner party w/friends & then late-nite snacks as we watch fireworks fill the sky. Having read reviewer comments regarding saltiness, I added the dressing mix slowly & did use less than the called for amt. It was tasty, but I felt it needed something extra so I added 2 tbsp chili sauce to give it some zip & sprinkled it w/fresh snipped chives. I like the outcome a lot & am sure it will be enjoyed. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

I thought the dip was OK but the guys loved it. It can turn out a bit salty. I used a little more than half of the packet of ranch dressing and I'm glad because even then I thought that the ranch was very prominent.
