This is really good but different then I expected. The ranch flavor was really mild. It was more just tangy than ranch-y. I usually find that the meat called for in these cream soup recipes is badly underestimated so I started with 6 bone in chops. Since I had more chops, I could not do the pan method. I browned the chops in 2 batches with pepper but no salt (I had read enough reviews saying it was too salty to salt the chops). I put the browned chops in a 9x13 casserole and browned just a little bit of onion in the remaining oil, then added the 1 1/2 tablespoons dip mix (note that the recipe calls for a half packet of mix) and half can evaporated milk to mix it up before pouring over the chops. I covered with foil then baked at 375 for 45 min, uncovering about half way through because I didn't want it too wet. It was tasty and not overly salty at all, but it needed more bake time to get really tender. I really liked it with the ranch rice called for. I wasn't clear on the recipe so I looked on the Campbell's website for the recipe. It wants you to mix the remaining 1 1/2 tbsp dip mix with 1 cup dry rice and water, then make your rice as normal. That was almost worth the recipe right there, I loved the ranch rice and it went great with the chops and sauce. I did only use 1 tbsp instead if 1 1/2 and it was great. Even with 6 chops, there was still plenty of gravy. You could probably even do 7 or 8 and still have plenty. This is a keeper, thanks!
