I love mashed potatoes. We eat them “plain” all of the time, but sometimes I like to change them up a bit. Ranch is a flavor that I really like and it tastes so good in and on potatoes. So I decided to take the recipe for mashed potatoes that came with my Ninja and adapt it to give it ranch flavor and an even creamier texture. They are sooooo good! I would have happily added more ranch seasoning but hubby doesn’t love it quite as much as I do so I didn’t go all out. Here’s how I make them.
