This Cayenne Ranch Dressing is perfect as a salad dressing, dip, and so much more.

I used my homemade copycat Outback Ranch dressing to create this Cayenne Ranch.  It is creamy, tangy and has a little kick. HOW TO MAKE BEST CAYENNE RANCH DRESSING

Cayenne Ranch Dressing is perfect with Chicken Fingers #ranch #homemade ranch

My oldest daughter, Carly, loves the Cayenne Ranch dressing from Slim Chickens, which surprised me because she does not like a lot of spicy foods.  She kept bragging about Slim Chickens Cayenne Ranch, so I decided to make my version of a Cayenne Ranch.  I used my homemade copycat Outback Ranch Dressing as the base and adding enough Cayenne to give it some heat without being too spicy.  After trying this Cayenne Ranch with chicken fingers, French fries and more we all agree it was the perfect combination of a creamy Buttermilk Ranch with some heat.

Cayenne Ranch Dressing Has Many Uses

This Cayenne Ranch dressing makes an excellent dip for not only chicken fingers and French Fries, but it is terrific on burgers and sandwiches.   Since getting my Philips Airfryer, we enjoy a lot of crispy fried food without any oil or quilt which allows us to eat fries and other fried foods more often.  Fried foods are perfect dipped in this dressing.

If you like Southwestern Ranch Dressing, be sure to check out my recipe.  It is also made using homemade Copycat Outback Ranch Dressing as the base.   I found a recipe in Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2 by Todd Wilbur.    Recipes For Our Daily Bread is not an affiliate of Amazon or Todd Wilbur cookbooks.

  4. I love adding spices to my Ranch dressing to make different flavors. Sometimes I add smoked paprika, black pepper, taco seasoning, smoked paprika, hot sauce. It all depends on what I am serving. It is a fun way to spice things up (pun intended).

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment on both my Cayenne Ranch and Southwestern Ranch post. It sounds like your family enjoys Ranch dressing too and loves to try new things to spice it up. I had not thought about trying this Southwestern Ranch on a taco salad. Thanks so much for the tip.
