Ranch Seasoning. You could make the ranch seasoning at home if you prefer. However, the packets are super convenient and make this recipe extra quick. The best kind for this recipe is Hidden Valley Ranch!

Mayonnaise. Any mayonnaise will work for this recipe, but opting for a full favor mayo is ideal. You could substitute vegan mayonnaise if you want to cut out eggs, too!

Buttermilk. The buttermilk gives this ranch the tanginess and amps up the creaminess. There are alternatives if you have another preference, including dairy-free options like soy milk. Remember, thinner kinds of milk will produce a runnier ranch, so you may want to adjust the measurements.

How to Use Wingstop’s Ranch Recipe

Ranch is a versatile condiment, and this Wingstop ranch dip is no different. The uses for ranch are nearly endless – it tastes good with almost anything, especially the chicken wings they are typically served with.

If you’re watching your trans fat intake, use it as the dipping sauce for veggies. Cucumbers, carrots, celery, broccoli, and cauliflower go well with this dip.

It could also serve as a dip for pizza. My kids also love to dip their quesadillas in ranch dressing!

This Wingstop ranch recipe works great as a salad dressing or with a tasty chicken dish. Ranch also tastes wonderful with plain waffle fries, or you could load up some french fries! If you’re a sandwich fan, this ranch could provide a nice tang to your lunch.

For a yummy sandwich option, use thinly sliced chicken, crispy strips of bacon, sliced tomatoes, and mashed avocado. Add some gouda or cheddar cheese slices and drizzle the ranch. Throw the assembled sandwich on the grill or in a frying pan for a few minutes per side. 

The result? Pure perfection! So many sandwich combinations could use this recipe to reach the next level. 

See? There’s more to ranch than a dip for your buffalo wings! Get creative in your Wingstop ranch recipe uses, and you might find a new favorite combination.

History of Wingstop

If you’re not familiar with Wingstop, no worries. But where have you been?! Wingstop is by far one of my favorite chain restaurants, and my go-to place for wings.  

The chain was founded in 1994 in Garland, Texas, by Antonio Swad and his business partner, Chris Oliver. The restaurant chain has grown to become one of the largest wing chains in the world, with over 1,500 locations globally. Let’s just stop for a moment and appreciate that “wing chains” is a thing 😉

You can find the most Wingstop locations in the states of: Texas, California, Florida, Georgia, and New York. However, Wingstop has locations in many other states, including Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona, and a few other states. 

What else is good at Wingstop?

Glad you asked! A few of my favorite Wingstop dishes include: 

  • Wingstop Voodoo Fries
  • Wingstop Lemon Pepper Wings
  • Wingstop Buffalo Wings
