Ditch Panera and make your own dressing with a spicy kick! Whether you use this as a dipping sauce or a salad dressing you'll be making this dressed up ranch over and over again!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing
  • 1 cup Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp White Pepper


  1. Whisk together the ranch and bbq sauce.
  2. Whisk in the smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, and white pepper.
  3. Serve as a salad dressing or dipping sauce.
  4. Store in the fridge.
  5. Good for up to a month in the fridge


  • Barbecue Sauce - use your preferred bbq sauce.
  • Ranch - I recommend only using Hidden Valley Ranch brand. The kind made with the mix using milk is preferable to pre-bottled.
  • Smoked Paprika - don't substitute regular paprika. It's not even close to the same as the smoked kind.
  • White Pepper - don't substitute black pepper. They are very different and the white pepper is where the kick in the dressing comes from.
