I developed this Paleo Southwest Ranch Dip after having a bite of Hidden Valley’s Fiesta Ranch Dip. It was super tasty, but I was shocked when I read the ingredient list on the seasoning packet. I knew I could make this paleo after making my dairy-free veggie dip last year. I am officially obsessed with this Paleo Southwest Ranch Dip. It has a little kick for the perfect amount of spice to pair with the cool ranch flavors. I know you all know I love my homemade ranch seasoning. Seriously I could put it on everything, and here again the ranch seasoning makes another winning recipe. I know it might seem weird to keep ranch seasoning on hand, but you can put it in everything! Don’t believe me… check out these other recipes featuring my homemade ranch seasoning: Crockpot Ranch Carnitas, Tomatillo Ranch Chicken, Buffalo Ranch Dip and Spicy Pepper Wings.
I spent this past weekend in Dallas for a girl’s weekend. It was fun to get together with friends, pamper ourselves, eat delicious food and stay up too late talking. Making friends as an adult is hard, but it is also hard keeping in touch with old friends when you don’t live in the same city. I love getting together at least once a year to just catch up and do all the girly things! I usually stay a little north of Dallas, but we stayed in West Dallas, which was right by downtown. We had an amazing view of the Dallas skyline from our boutique hotel. For Saturday brunch, we ate at a place called Smoke. I cannot recommend this place enough. I had the Pulled Whole Hog BBQ Eggs Benedict with Goat Cheese Potato Cakes. OMG! This breakfast was to die for. I opted out of the English muffin and instead ate my benedict on top of the goat cheese potato cake. I seriously want to recreate that potato cake, but I don’t want to freak anyone out if I use a little dairy. We will see though because I need that breakfast back in my life asap!
