For flavoring and spice, 1/4 cup of hot sauce (I use Texas Pete), some honey, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper get mixed in. To make this dip super quick and easy, I use frozen popcorn chicken. Cook it according to package directions and then chop it into smaller pieces so that it will be easy to scoop up with tortilla chips.

      1. Could you use regular milk with a package of RANCH DIP mixed in?
        vs. Buttermilk? Some of us oldies need it a little more mild. Let me know
