These crock pot ranch potatoes have taught me I seriously don’t use my slow cooker often enough. I’ve made so many yummy recipes in it but I could make so many more. Sometimes I think I should buy a second crock pot so I can have slow cooker Cafe Rio pork going while I’m cooking up some slow cooker creamed corn.
Wait, make that two slow cookers (I need this programmable slow cooker!) and one Instant Pot (I have this Instant Pot and love it!). I could do the slow cooker Cafe Rio pork, slow cooker creamed corn, and easy Instant Pot Mexican rice!
But I digress. If you haven’t tried making potatoes in the slow cooker, this is your chance. These crock pot ranch potatoes (or slow cooker ranch potatoes) need to be added to your crock pot potato recipes collection ASAP.
I’m pretty sure you have all the ingredients to make crock pot potatoes in your fridge and pantry except maybe ranch dressing. But you’ll want to keep that stocked once you try these ranch potatoes.
My college-age daughter LOVED these crock pot potatoes, which got me thinking what a great dish they would be for a college student. They’re pretty budget friendly and the recipe makes a ton.
She could serve them with a green salad making them a super affordable way to feed roommates! (Or just count the potatoes as veggies and call it good…)
Whether you call them slow cooker ranch potatoes or crock pot ranch potatoes, the end result is the same: easy, flavorful potatoes that will become your new favorite side dish.
One of the best things about this potato side dish is it’s a great one for serving a crowd. Slow cooker potato recipes often provide a generous amount of portions and that’s definitely the case with this recipe.
Next time you need to bring a side dish to a party, make these ranch potatoes. They’ll be a hit and no one will know how little effort you put into them!
