Homemade Southwest Ranch

I fell in love with southwest ranch at a bdubs.

In my opinion, Buffalo Wild Wings has the best southwestern ranch. It’s usually served with fried pickles or onion rings, although Malloree asks for a side to dip her wings in. It’s so good! And for years I’ve been trying to recreate it at home. It’s creamy, with cool herbaceousness from the ranch and a subtle spicy kick from the southwest seasoning and sriracha.
