Ranch lovers, rejoice: You can easily make those eternally shelf-stable (and eternally useful) powder packets you buy at the store right at home. Aside from the benefit of having an endless amount of ranch-flavored goodness stocked in your pantry at the ready, making the powdered mixture yourself means no more mystery ingredients. Say goodbye to unpronounceable chemicals and hello to even more flavor.

For serving, we recommend rubbing it on chicken just as you would any other dry spice mixture or tossing it with warm buttered popcorn to create the ultimate snack for your at-home movie night. Another idea: tossing your potato wedges with it before roasting. You can even add a little to the dipping sauce.
