I started making this recipe years ago. It was probabley the first "out of my comfort zone" recipe I had ever tried and my family LOVED it. I actually think this recipe is better then the restaurant dish. On the mexi-ranch dressing I add much more cumin, chili powder, and dill weed then the recipe calls for so just keep mixing until you have the kind of flavor you desire.
