I ran out of Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning. I usually buy it in the big containers because it will last a while. I forgot to pick up a new container. I don’t like making dip in big batches unless it is for special occasions or certain functions. I just don’t sit and eat a whole thing anymore. Yes, anymore, as in I was a ravenous teenager who could sit and eat a whole bag of chips with dip and burn it off in no time. I wish my metabolism was still that good!
I began experimenting with my spices and the sour cream. I don’t mind the taste of plain sour cream as much as I use to. It has become a staple in my home… Dear, Peanut Butter, I miss you. While I have made dips in the past from scratch they have come out less than pleasant or even edible. It could be my changing pallet as well. Here is what it looks like:
It doesn’t look too scary, right? This is what transpired:
– Sour Cream
– Minced Onion
– Onion Powder
– Garlic Powder
– Creole Seasoning
– Pinch of Sea Salt
Everything was added to taste. You need to let the minced onion sit a bit as it can be crunchy. I would say this is some place between onion and veggie-tasting. Not so much like ranch. The flavor is mild and could probably use a bit more of something but I have yet to figure out what. In the mean time, I am going to enjoy it with a bowl of chips, hot chocolate, and Netflix!
