Hot Honey Ranch

If you are anything like me, you will absolutely love this hot honey ranch! I love a good hot sauce for just about anything. This hot sauce can be used as a dip, or you can put it on just about anything! My favorites are drizzling this stuff on my pizza or really any protein. Pair this with your favorite chicken and you have a knock-your-socks-off meal!

Why you’ll love this spicy ranch

  • This is a combo of ranch, hot honey and chili crisp. What’s better than that!?
  • Hot honey ranch can be used as a sauce to drizzle on your favorite meal, or it can be a dip! Whatever you prefer!
  • The sweet honey, salty and spicy hot honey ranch is a sauce you will want to have in your refrigerator at all times. And it’s so easy to make!

Here’s what you’ll need to make it

  • Thermometer – I used a candy thermometer, but a meat thermometer will work too. You just have to make sure you heat your oil to about 250 degrees. Any hotter and you will burn your spices.
  • Sauce Pan – Something large enough to heat the avocado oil.
  • Spatula – I used this to stir the oil and then the oil and spice mixture.
  • Medium Bowl – Make this bowl large enough so the oil doesn’t overflow when you add it to the spices.
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons
  • Whisk – Use the whisk to mix the yogurt and honey to the oil and spice mixture.

Ingredients & substitutions

  • Avocado oil – You can also use any oil that will withstand a high heat.
  • Red pepper flakes – This recipe calls for 1/2 cup. If you prefer a less-spicy sauce, I would cut the red pepper flakes in half.
  • Sesame seeds – This gives the sauce a nice texture and mild, nutty flavor.
  • Garlic – I used fresh, minced garlic. It turns out the best when you add the hot oil.
  • Salt – You need it. Don’t skip it.
  • Ranch seasoning – This gives it that ranch flavor that you want.
  • Greek yogurt – I used plain Greek yogurt. It gives this recipe a nice, creamy texture.
  •  Honey – The honey adds a nice sweet and salty vibe to this sauce.
