How to Make Creamy Ranch Sloppy Joes
The key ingredients for this recipe are cream cheese and ranch seasoning packets (affiliate link). Ranch seasoning will provide the flavor, while cream cheese packs a pile of creaminess into each bite!
When testing this recipe I found 1 seasoning packet wasn’t quite enough. My family agreed 1 1/2 packets was the sweet spot. I also discovered it is best to turn off the heat and let the cream cheese gently melt into the meat. It stays creamier doing this. Finally, draining the fat from the pan not only makes for a healthier Sloppy Joe, but also allows the cream cheese to shine more.
