"I agree that the Ranch flavor was too strong but even so, we had NO leftovers. Next time I will plan to use 1/2 the Ranch. I was also afraid it would be dry but it wasn't. Very tasty and quick recipe that I plan to add to our regulars list."

"The ranch dressing was overpowering. The next time I make this I will use 1/4 of the mix. Other than that it was a quick and easy recipe."

"I made this the other morning for my kids and it was a great hit. One of our kids is a picky eater and he stated that this went "WOW" in his mouth. I knew immediately this was a keeper recipe."
