Cheddar Ranch Dip

A Quick and Easy Cheddar Ranch Dip


I like to keep a tasty dip on hand in the refrigerator.  That way I always have something at the ready to offer a drop-in visitor.  It also helps to keep hungry family members at bay when dinner isn't quite ready, but stomachs are grumbling.  This cheddar ranch dip is easy to make, packs a lot of flavor and keeps well in the fridge.

The flavors in this dip come from a packet of prepared ranch dip seasoning.  I don't usually rely on pre-made seasoning mixtures, but in this case it makes this dip quick and easy to make.  With just five ingredients you can have this dip ready to serve in five minutes.  How easy is that?

    Cheddar Ranch Dip
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 ounce package ranch dip seasoning
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk, well shaken
  • 8 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions
Shred the cheddar cheese using the large slots of a box grater.  Place the cream cheese, seasoning packet, sour cream, and buttermilk in a medium bowl.  Using a hand mixer, blend the ingredients together until smooth.  Stir the shredded cheese into the dip using the mixer.  Beat the ingredients together until the cheese is well combined. Chill for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to combine.  Serve with your favorite crackers.

  1. Every now and then, it's fine to take a bit of help from prepared products, especially one that's just a mix of dried seasonings and spices. The dip looks delicious!
