Spicy Ranch Dressing Recipe

Ranch dressing is the most popular dressing in the United States and its flavor is unique and delicious, but how can you spice it up if you are looking for a spicy dressing with that unmistakable ranch taste? The answer is to combine readymade ranch dressing (or a homemade ranch dressing recipe) with hot sauce and other condiments to add some fire to it.

The following recipe makes a lovely ranch dressing with a bite. Serve it with wings, fries, baked potatoes, or poppers, or drizzle it over your favorite garden salad or green salad. If you do not need such a large amount of dressing then you can scale down the recipe very easily. You can also add less spice if you want the dressing slightly spicy instead of fiery hot.

Making this spicy ranch dressing recipe is just a question of combining the ingredients and chilling the dressing for an hour before serving it. It is no more difficult than that. Feel free to experiment with your favorite spices and hot sauce if you like. Try Sriracha instead of Tabasco or another variation if you want to. This dressing is usually cool and creamy, so the spicy element is surprising but delicious.
