Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slow Cooker Ranch Beans I made these beans as directed. Using the Hidden Valley was the secret. Only season you need and I made them with out meat. And they went so fast and I was excited how good they turned out. I forgot my pic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Altered to plant based These were alright, I make baked beans from scratch. So we decided to try another recipe for a change. My family loved it but for me was just alright. Not sure I would make again but it was demolished by everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Ranch Beans! These are so simple and delicious. Also try it in the pressure cooker. For a extra kick try adding a packet of the Fiesta Ranch mix in place of the original Ranch for a change of pace. So delicious and goes great with all types of meals.
