Texas Ranch from Lonestar Steakhouse

Though I'm not certain this is the exact measurements, the following will make a ranch dip that tastes really close to the Texas Ranch dip that comes with the cheese fries at Lonestar Steakhouse.

  • 1 Cup of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing

  • 1/2 tablespoon of Chili Powder

  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper

Mix well and serve.   I use the "Spice Time" brand (cheap) Chili Powder & Cayenne Pepper.   For more bite add 1/2 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper.


Gordy's Killer Kielbasa

Gordy, a friend of mine at work, makes this kielbasa that is just awesome.  I got the recipe from him.  I actually didn't believe him when I looked over the ingredients.   I  HATE cranberry sauce, but you'd never know it was in this dish.  

Ingredients:

  •     1 bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce (12 oz)

  •     1 can of whole cranberry sauce (16 oz) 

  •     1 tablespoon of brown sugar

  •     dash of worshire sauce

  •     dash of lemon juice

  •     3 lbs of kielbasa or smoked sausage

Preparation:

  1. Boil the kielbasa for approximately 20 minutes until it is cooked thoroughly.   

  2. Mix the Chili Sauce, whole cranberry sauce, brown sugar, worshire sauce, and lemon juice in a crock pot.

  3. Cut the kielbasa into 1 inch pieces and mix them into the crock pot.

  4. Place the crock pot on high for 1 hour then switch to low for another hour, stirring occasionally.

  5. Enjoy
