    Default Ranch Dressing VS Del Scorcho

    I have been thinking about this for some time and I wanted to share my thoughts.
    A while back when I worked at a pizza place, a person said to me that “ranch dressing can go on anything”. So intrigued with the challenge I thought about it as I was serving the table. There were only a few things that I could come up with that it really had no business being associated with, but ultimately could be eaten with (although not very pleasantly). Ranch dressing isn’t tasty with sushi, cereal, ice cream/frozen yogurt and other sweets. Ranch’s strong points are with side orders like french fries and fried zucchini. You can put it on pizza, but then aren’t you kinda bringing sand to the beach? I mean pizza kicks ass by itself, so why **** with it? I don’t. The same can be said about burgers. As a dressing, I’m okay with it. I’m more a balsamic vinaigrette guy, or bleu cheese every once in a while, but I digress.
    The main thing that ranch dressing lacks is heat. And for that, Del Scorcho has it in spades. I believe that Del Scorcho has more applications than ranch dressing, but I want your opinion on this. I think Del Scorcho is waaaaaaaaay better on fries and fried zucchini (I grab handfuls (have you seen my hands? they’re enormous) of the stuff when I go to Del Taco), and it can be added to things like eggs which ranch can’t.

    So, what do all the LGK Food Court faithful believe?
    Am I retarted and that ranch pwns Del Scorcho?
    Or am I the ****ing man, and I’m the first to break away from the monopoly that ranch dressing has in the condiment world?

    Now go away.

    I absolutely hate ranch dressing. The smell of it literally makes me want to puke.

    As much as I hate Del Taco, the del scorcho rules. And yes, you can apply it to so many things.

    Hot sauce goes well on everything, while ranch is disgusting (unless mixed with pesto, and used on salad)

    The problem with ranch dressing is that it's kind of like white paint in that there are too many variations and in turn, you don't always get the same taste with ranch. For example, if you were to go to each fast food restaurant and order fries and asked for ranch with it, they wouldn't all taste the same. I can't recall off the top of my head, but I think it's Jack in the Box that has terrible ranch.

    If you can find it, try chipotle ranch or avacado ranch. Both insanely good with fries, fried zuchini, pizza (if that's your thing) burgers... you name it. Anything that ranch can be dipped into or put on, those two types are better.

    I haven't tried Del Scorcho on anything besides the burritos, but I just might have to give it a shot. I don't think it has heat in spades, but it's got some kick, and I've got a thing for spicy.

    And Az, I know what you mean about smelling something making you want to vomit. Remember these:



    When I was about 5, I got into one of those HUGE bags of them and ate the entire thing. I can barely stand to look at the picture without gagging, lol.

    ok... maybe I was a little over the top with the use of "spades", but thats what came into my head. I'm a fan of spicy as well, but some hot sauces are just hot without flavor and Del Scorcho have a pretty decent amount of both.
    For instance, Tobasco is all heat and vinegar to me with a 2-D flavor profile. DS has heat, spice, little vinegar kick... mmm, I think I need to eat a second breakfast now...

    That makes perfectly good sense and I agree.

    I did the same thing with a huge bag of chocolate chips when I was little. Still don't eat chocolate to this day.

    Mix ranch and Del Scorcho together. Now you have the ultimate weapon.

    I have been waiting for someone to come up with the "spork" option. The creamyness of the ranch kills the heat of the Del Scorcho and the ranch spice overpowers the zest. All you're left with is cream-vinegar chunky pink sauce.

    Sorry! THIS is not an option. You get the ultimate meh.

    One or the other my friend. One or the other.

    also, if anyone else has as good if not better (impossible I think) condiment, please throw it in the mix. I'm not going to be harsh or rude about your suggestion.

    But it's kind of like french dressing, just more messican.
