Steps (9)

TOMATO SOUP:

  1. 1

    In a large pot over medium heat, sweat the onions, apples and garlic. As they begin to release their flavors, season with a tablespoon of salt to enhance their natural sweetness.

  2. 2

    Stir in the diced tomatoes and allow the mixture to simmer, absorbing the rich flavors from the onions and garlic, and pour in the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch®.

  3. 3

    Using a blender or immersion blender, puree the mixture until smooth.

  4. 4

    Pour the soup back into the pot (if using a stand-alone blender) and adjust the seasoning with salt to taste.

  5. 5

    Ladle the soup into bowls and drizzle with some additional Hidden Valley® Original Ranch®. Sprinkle Hidden Valley® Ranch Chili Crunch on top for an extra zing.

CHILI CRUNCH GRILLED CHEESE:

  1. 1

    Preheat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter, ensuring it covers the surface evenly.

  2. 2

    On one slice of bread, place a slice of Gouda cheese, sprinkle some shredded cheddar, and then top with another slice of Gouda. Place the second slice of bread on top to form a sandwich. Repeat for the remaining sandwiches.

  3. 3

    Place the prepared sandwiches onto the griddle, pressing them gently. Cook until the bottom slice turns golden brown and the cheese begins to melt. Flip and cook the other side in the same manner.

  4. 4

    Just before removing the grilled cheese from the griddle, sprinkle Hidden Valley® Ranch Chili Crunch on the melted cheese side of the sandwich.
