Here’s how to make an easy corn on the cob recipe from Katie Lee and Healthy Choice Power Dressings.
Crunchy Ranch Corn on the Cob
- 4 ears of corn, cooked (grilled or boiled)
- 1/3 cup Healthy Choice Power Dressings Creamy Ranch

- Brush each ear of corn with a generous amount of Ranch dressing. Spread the ground corn chips onto a plate and roll each ear of corn in the chips to completely coat each ear. Serve.
Yes, this recipe is corn on the cob covered in ranch flavored corn chips. What is not to like about this recipe?
In addition to being quite simple, the flavors and textures really pop. The use of the Creamy Ranch dressing adds a tanginess to each bite. Without being too rich, the flavor balances the sweetness of summer corn.
The texture from the crushed ranch-flavored corn chips adds additional crunch. In a way, there is that guilty pleasure experience of enjoying a chip yet still eating corn on the cob.
While this recipe is quite tasty, it lends itself to different flavor variations. You could change the corn chip flavor to bring more heat or brightness. For example, a spicy lime corn chip could be an option when paired with a skirt steak.
If you are looking for an easy corn on the cob recipe that will be a huge hit with your family, this Crunch Ranch Corn on the Cob is it. You can tell people it is a family secret recipe or you created it yourself. We won’t tell.
