Spicy Ranch Dip

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Studentchef

Simple, quick and easy to make. Good for any party. I would have suggested this for Super Bowl (even though I'm not a football fan). The Buttermilk ranch dressing mix is very important, although you can use any kind of dry ranch mix.

We had pretty mixed reactions to this dip. My first problem was that the 1/2 cup buttermilk ranch dip mix seemed like way too much. A whole packet of mix is only an 1/8 cup. From past experience (DH sprinkles ranch mix on his popcorn), it's easy to get too much. So instead of the 1/2 cup I chose to use just 1 teaspoon. Even then it was too "ranchy" for DH. DS thought it was too cream cheesy and too lumpy for him, but by the next day he was eating it & enjoying it. I thought the lemon was over-powering and the title suggested some kick to it but it wasn't spicy at all. Although DS ended up eating this dip, the rest of us didn't like it enough to try again. Perhaps the refrigeration time should be longer than 2 hours and I think there may be an error in the ranch mix amount. Thanks for submitting your creation, Chef! Good luck!
