Homemade Spicy Ranch Seasoning Mix

Need ranch seasoning/dressing/dip for your holiday party or dinner, but don’t feel like venturing to the store? Then I am here to rescue you! (Assuming you have all these ingredients in your pantry.) This ranch seasoning mix can be made to use immediately or stored for later use. I decided to make it spicy, but if you prefer a non-spicy, traditional version then omit the red pepper.
