I absolutely LOVE these potatoes! After reading some of the other reviews, I was very cautious about how much ranch seasoning and cream cheese I added to my potatoes. For every one potato, I used one ounce of cream cheese, and that proved to be more than enough. In addition to that change, I seasoned to taste with the ranch dressing. I mixed the ranch seasoning in with the cream cheese until the ratio of cream cheese and seasoning looked to be about even. I melted butter in the microwave and poured it into the potatoes, and then I added the cream cheese/ranch mixture. I found this made it easier to mix the ingredients as the butter makes the potatoes more smooth. Even after mixing everything together, if you feel the ranch taste isn't strong enough you could still mix the mix with an additional bit of butter or cream cheese and then add it to the potatoes. I found that for me, the sour cream was unnecessary as I can't really taste it anyway. I've made these several times and just omit the sour cream altogether. I am dieting and really enjoy these potatoes because they are delicious, filling, and you can minimize the calories and fat without missing out on the taste. Use fat free cream cheese instead of regular. Instead of butter, use "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter", or "Parkay Butter Spray", and melt it in the microwave first. Whenever you melt these sprays, they taste almost identical to real butter. Omit the sour cream (it really doesn't alter the taste, I promise!).
