This simple Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix can completely replace the ranch seasoning mix packets you buy at the store. They are insanely expensive. Am I right?! Not to mention the weird unknown ingredients so this version is a fantastic alternative! I usually double the recipe and keep a jar of it in my pantry.
I tend to use a lot of seasoning mixes in my crock pot recipes like The One and Only Crock Pot Chicken and Crock Pot Salsa Verde Shredded Beef . There is nothing worse than a bland protein so this spice mix really adds some dimension and flavor! I also like to mix a couple teaspoons into a little plain Greek yogurt and dip veggies in it for an afternoon snack.
Most of us are super busy and tend to not want to take the time to make a lot of our foods and condiments from scratch, but I believe it is worth it. I love this article by Food Babe that highlights the harmful ingredients hiding in our spice cabinets and four ways to buy them safely. We are so fortunate to have a great health food coop where we can buy spices from bulk bins and they always seem so fresh!
