ranch-bakeDid I get your attention with ranch? I have made several meals with my clean dry ranch seasoning, and they have all been a huge hit. I was debating on what to cook tonight , i brainstormed what we had on hand and what sounded good. I love the 21 day fix taco bake and decided on a whim to change it up and see what happens! I am glad I did because this was so delicious , full of flavor and left me feeling very satisfied! My entire family enjoyed it, my oldest who is 7 asked for seconds! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
