Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix

Homemade Ranch seasoning mix is used to season everything from biscuits to chicken and dips to dressings. Make the dry seasoning mix yourself and save money, while avoiding nasty chemicals and preservatives!

I came across a really yummi looking recipe on Pinterest not too long ago. It was a fellow blogger’s recipe for Loaded Baked Potato Dip.  A few days later, I saw THIS recipe, for Cheesy Bacon Ranch Soup. Just this morning, I Pinned one from Six Sister’s Stuff, for Creamy Ranch Chicken.

One common ingredient in all three of the recipes is dry ranch seasoning mix. So, I knew that I would need to make some homemade ranch seasoning mix. I just can’t justify spending money to buy a packet of chemicals and preservatives. Besides, some gourmet seasoning blends and dry dressing mixes are really expensive. Especially when you factor in the cost per ounce!
Oh, and you can make more than just ranch seasoning at home. My friend Rachel has a recipe for homemade fajita seasoning!

This seasoning mix is made with simple pantry spices, and it’s made for about three times less than buying the packets outright. This recipe makes a nice sized batch, too, so if you store it in a tightly sealed jar or even a zip top bag, it’ll last you quite a while.

  1. Another great thing about this is having control over the amount of salt. Sure the stuff in the store is convenient, but because I need to pay attention to my potassium intake I’m also highly aware of the sodium content in many foods. I’ve gotten used to foods with MUCH lower amounts of salt but ranch dip is so very yummy! Also I can make it vegan without hardly thinking about it, or spending two minutes in the grocery store trying to decipher the ingredients. 🙂

  2. You’re right, I have all of the ingredients in my spice rack, of course. What I love about this is not just that I save money and eliminate preservatives, but that if I want to make a recipe that calls for Ranch Seasoning Mix, I won’t have to run out and buy a packet. Thanks for this great short-cut.

  3. How glad am I that I saw this on Pinterest??? Thank you – I cannot wait to make this and store in my pantry!
