Last month, in between all of our holiday shindigs, my husband decided we needed to have friends over to watch a football game – a game that could clinch our home team for a playoff spot (spoiler alert: it was a close game, but we did not win). Normally, I am on board for any and all reasons to have friends over for food and football, but I was exhausted from everything else we had going on during the holiday hustle.
As a girl who likes a plan, I felt super unprepared for our impromptu watch party. I swear I know how to go with the flow, but when it comes to hosting, I like to have a menu in mind, so I know everyone will be happy and full.
But then, I remembered I had everything on hand that I need to make my homemade ranch dressing – quick, easy, and flavorful – just what I needed for a homegating par-tay, right? Except, what am I using said ranch for?!
I ran to Sam’s Club to snag snacks for the masses. You know I love making homemade chicken wings, which was my original plan; pick up a package of chicken wings, to toss in a quick rub. Until I saw Tyson® Bone-In Wings (5 lbs) NEW Tequila Lime flavors. DONE. Ready in under 30 minutes, already seasoned, and super crispy, these Tequila Lime wings were exactly what I needed. Since this was a 5-lb bag, I have plenty to bake for more watch parties, as we lead up to the Big Game.
I also tossed tortilla chips, and veggies into my cart to round out the menu, but not before I discovered a box of State Fair® Mini Corn Dogs (65 cnt) near my chicken wings, in the frozen food aisle. Jason loves to grill, but there wasn’t time, so why not bake a quick batch of mini corn dogs, instead? Then we’re still getting our hot-dog fix, in a bite. Everything was ready to go, and kept me out of the kitchen in less than an hour!
The last time I made my homemade ranch dressing, and added chipotle, our friends legit put it on everything. And so, I wanted to test their taste buds again, and add a new twist; at the last minute I decided to add 1/2 diced jalapeno, and some fresh cilantro. The combo is a perfect dip pairing for Tequila Lime Chicken Wings! Once again, they dipped pretty much everything in this cleaner version of ranch dressing/dip. #iwin
If you like spicy, you can easily add a whole jalapeno. I am a wimp, so that is why this recipe calls for 1/2 a fresh jalapeno.
- 1 cup buttermilk
- ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, diced
- ½ jalapeno diced, ribs and seeds removed
- ½ tbsp onion powder
- ½ tbsp dried dill
- ½ tbsp dried parsley
- 1 tbsp dried chives
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- To a jar, or bowl, mix all ingredients together in a bowl until smooth and evenly blended. Alternatively, you can shake all ingredients together in jar, as well.
