Southwest Ranch Dip

I just cannot believe how quickly the holiday season snuck up on me and how quickly it has nearly passed! This is one of my favorite times of the year because I love getting together with friends and family and just sharing stories of the year. It also is one of the best snacking seasons of the year and my go-to appetizer is Southwest Ranch Dip. I’m telling you, this dip will not disappoint.

My favorite way to start a dip is with ranch dressing. It has such a versatile flavor and can be dressed up in all sorts of ways. I like to start with Homestyle Ranch Dressing and go from there. This dressing provides delicious herb and vegetable notes to any dip. My Southwest Ranch Dip also features a helping of cream cheese, sour cream, black beans and corn. It’s perfectly dippable with tortilla chips or spreadable on crackers. Oh, and don’t forget the cheese! This dip comes together in under 10 minutes and can be made ahead of time.

Litehouse has an awesome giveaway going on right now featuring their delicious Homestyle Ranch Dressing! They are encouraging all of their fans to dress up this dressing in all different ways to make new and exciting dips. Basil Parmesan Ranch anyone?
