"Ranch dressing? I don't think so! I thinned down the dour cream with two tablespoons of buttermilk and seasoned it with half a teaspoon cumin. Eliminated the hot sause and used a quarter cup of chunky salsa. I uesed them as a topping after the chicken then sprinkled with cheese. Otherwise, it's a really good recipe!"

"The ranch dressing did not interest me much. I made my own dressing combining lite sour cream and salsa to top this recipe."

"Not exactly sure what to say about this one. The kids love it, I don't. I'll be making it for them many more times but I'll make myself something else."
