This didn't really turn out as well as I had hoped it would. You really couldn't taste the ranch flavoring with the amount called for in the recipe, and you definitely did not need the milk. Also, fresh vegetables would have been much better. I won't make this again, at least not without several changes.



This is better if you omit the canned veggies and milk, add 2 Tablespoons minced fresh onions, 2 tablespoons of sweet relish, and a cup of frozen petite peas.



Like many other reviews, I omitted the milk and carrots and used frozen peas.... it's five stars with the changes!
