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.

I’ve always loved the taste of ranch dressing, so I know I’ll love your mashed potatoes. What a great comfort food! Looks so creamy and delicious.

I love mashed potatoes especially when they are flavored! They’re such a comfort food and I’m all about that!

My daughter and I could eat the whole bowl by ourselves. My husband not so much, he is different and doesn’t care for ranch. More for us.

I grew up eating ranch mashed potatoes growing up all the time! Although, my ranch mashed potatoes were just mashed potatoes covered in ranch dressing – the poor man’s version, lol!

This recipe sounds delicious for the ninja ranch mashed potatoes. It is always great when you can switch things up like mash potatoes. Either the Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System or Ninja 4-in-1 Cooking System are both something I am going to have to check out. Ninja has so many great products. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I like ranch mashed potatoes. I haven’t had any of them in a while. Maybe I will talk my husband into making these for me this week.

Paula Bendfeldt Diaz February 10, 2017 - 10:17 pm

This looks like such an easy recipe. We are big mashed potatoes fans in our home and we don’t like mashed potatoes from a bag but like to make them from scratch.

This looks so good! I needed some new mashed potato recipes because my boyfriend doesn’t like the ones I normally make haha

I love flavored mash potatoes and i know my daughter who is a ranch dressing fan will love this recipe.

I make my own mashed potatoes. Boiling, mashing, seasoning it. The instant mashed potatoes you can buy at the store just doesn’t taste the same. I will try you ranch mashed potato recipe. It looks so delicious!

You taught me something new today. Didn’t know that ninja had other kitchenware products. Those potatoes sound great.

I love cream cheese in mashed potatoes but I haven’t tried adding ranch seasoning. I should try that next time.

Anosa February 12, 2017 - 9:07 pm

never tried yet to have a ranch seasoning. I might try that during my off days. Thanks for this!
