As usual you can find the full ingredients list, amounts, step by step guide, nutritional estimates, and helpful shopping links in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post. Here’s a guide to help while you are shopping or getting your weekly grocery list together:
- Flour tortillas
- Cream cheese, softened
- Sour cream
- Packet dry ranch seasoning, or homemade ranch seasoning
- Shredded carrots

Feel free to adjust the veggies to your liking. These work well for us but if you prefer other items you can add them and swap them out to make these work for your family.
Other choices I’d consider are cucumbers, black olives, different varieties of peppers, even tomatoes would be good if you dried them a bit (or use sun-dried tomatoes) to keep everything from getting mushy!
