A couple of weeks ago, we had dinner at a friend's where I was first introduced to this idea of buffalo ranch dressing. It was in a store-bought bottle, and after giving it the side-eye, I caved and tried it with my dinner. I was hooked and knew right then and there that I wanted to recreate this dressing at home.
I didn't even wait until the next day.
That same night, after we got home, Judah went right to bed and Ben headed over to the neighbors' to watch an NBA playoff game. So, what did I do? I played in the kitchen and quickly came up with a recipe for buffalo ranch dressing! It was super easy because I already had a favorite ranch dressing recipe. Just a few more ingredients thrown into the blender turned a traditional ranch into a blazin' delicious ranch! Now, I just need to figure out how to make those addicting buffalo wing Pringles!
I know what you're thinking. Can't I just mix together some store-bought ranch dressing and buffalo sauce? But, hey! What's the fun in that? Plus, the homemade way just tastes better. 🙂
