Ranch dip is one of the most underrated parts of a Super Bowl party. It's small and just a part of the equation -- you need something to dip in it -- but it is absolutely vital.
Someone brings chips? Cool, we have ranch dip for that. That jackass thought you wanted to be healthy on Super Bowl Sunday and brought vegetables? Awesome, we can slather it in dip and ignore that everyone here probably hates you. Ranch dip does it all.
Here's the other reason you can't have a Super Bowl party without ranch dip -- its so easy to make. Get the ingredients, mix them and you're done.
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
2 tablespoons of sour cream
1 small scallion, minced
Salt and pepper
Mix it all together in a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve.
I know, it is very difficult, but you need something to counter those crazy people trying to force vegetables on you.
