Just wanted to let you know that I made another batch of this and used pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar...WOW!!! Gives it a nice kick!! :) Wish I could give you another 5 *'s!!
Amazing...I made a few changes, used 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 1 cup Parmesan cheese (both mixed in instead of on top), 8 oz cream cheese, 16 oz sour cream, and two cans of artichoke hearts, and left everything else as is (except for cheddar cheese) . It came out delicious. My husband who is very particular absolutely loved it as did everyone else. I am definitely going to be using this over and over again. Thank you!
Made this using a little less than the full pkg. of ranch, added 1/2 c. mozz. cheese, and on top also, added 1 T. minced garlic from a jar, 1 T. dried onion, and mixed all at once, not adding last 5 min. Still great and VERY creamy! Dipped toasted pita bread. Loved it!
It was ok. I didn't feel like the flavors really melded in the cooking. I did carefully choose the ranch mix and it was not overly salty - the ranch DIP mix has almost 2x the sodium of the ranch DRESSING mix
Wonderful!!! Thank you. I've added crab and clams & it's been great. For those of you that think it's too salty add a bit of milk or cream to the dish. I think it's wonderful.
I love this dip, I made it last year and had rave reviews then lost it!! I am so happy to finally have found it again. I like to low fat cream cheese and sour cream and also texmex cheese to give it a bit of zing. I also suggest adding a bit of garlic to it also.
Doubled the recipe and made it with 1 package of Ranch dip mix. Gave it a great taste. Served with cut up bread cubes. It was a big hit and really good.
This was a WONDERFUL dip! I doubled the recipe and took it to my SIL's house the day after Thanksgiving for a family get-to-gather. I brought along some tortilla chips and bagel chips and the dip was almost gone by the end of the evening - everyone loved it! Thanks you for posting, it is now one of our favorite dips.
This is my new favorite dip. So easy. Got a lot of compliments on this dip. The only thing I changed was I added a tiny clove of minced garlic per others suggestions.
Can't wait to make it - Love that you have a sense of humor in the preparation (lava stage)! We do alot of football tailgates and this sounds great! Thank you!
