Who loves ranch dressing? Well then, try adding it to your next batch of guacamole. It's pretty cool.

Yesterday we told you about how to make the ultimate guacamole. In doing so, we revealed a certain creamy secret ingredient. That led to the idea of adding another creamy ingredient to create a whole new guacamole variation, ranch dressing.

You can go in with a store-bought ranch. Choose your favorite one. Some people love buttermilk ranch and others do not. It’s up to you. You can alternatively use homemade ranch. We have a recipe over here that is loaded with herbs and would taste great in guacamole.

To boost the ranch flavor in this guacamole, there’s also some ranch powder. You can find this in the grocery store near the salad dressings. It comes in a jar like this, or in packets like this.
