Creamy Homemade Ranch Dip

I love recipes that combine cream cheese with ranch seasoning, marrying its creamy richness with the zesty kick of ranch.

Then add in more depth of flavor with the fresh bright notes of green onions, the subtle zesty heat of the jalapeños and the sweet crunch of the corn.

It always leaves me craving more of this amazing smooth dip and coming back for seconds!!

Also great served with my homemade hummus, grilled bang bang chicken skewers, chicken kabobs and easy salad recipes like spaghetti pasta salad or Mexican street corn pasta salad.
