Cheddar Ranch Dip

Cheddar Ranch Dip
I like to keep a 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 flavor in this dip comes 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 cab have this dip ready to serve in 5 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

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!
