( and add a lot of bacon )
This goofy recipe went super duper viral , with me coming to the party late and only seeing it, and showing it to Neil Sunday. I was not crazy about it out of the crock pot - it is sort of bland. But, Neil said he was happy to give his taste buds a break and have some really white people food. It did taste better today.
Now, I did not add any extra salt or pepper - thinking that between the ranch dressing and bacon there would be plenty, and I think it could have used it. This is a very good technique to have , and I am going to try it again, but using low sodium taco seasoning instead of the ranch dressing.
