Here's our family fav recipe:
1/2 carton sour cream (8 oz = 1 C)
heaping 1-1/2 t dried minced onion
1-1/2 t parsley
1-1/4 t garlic powder
1/2 t seasoning salt (maybe more, per preference)
1/2 t dill weed
Mix well and allow flavors to meld in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Alone, this makes a wonderful Ranch Dip.
If you want to make it more dressing-like, simply add buttermilk, milk, or heavy whipping cream to get the desired consistency.
Now, when we made homemade Potachoes the other other day, I was wanting/needing more of a Jalapeno Ranch to put on top. I simply scooped out several slices of hot jalapeno slices:
and chopped them up fine. Not really measuring though, sorry. Maybe 2 T worth? Anyways, I stirred that into my homemade Ranch and let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours. It turned out great!!!
And then... after a few more days of sitting in the fridge, it got even hotter. Whew. If you don't like so much of a burn, either use a milder pepper OR just not add as much. We like it spicy, so this was great for us.
