Hellmann’s Southwestern Ranch Mayonnaise

Hellmann’s Southwestern Ranch Mayonnaise Hellmann’s Southwestern Ranch Mayonnaise I used to be hooked on Hellmann’s mayonnaise. Back in college I went through the stuff like it was water. In fact, I ate so much of it that when referring to water I probably could have said “I go through this stuff like it’s mayonnaise!” and it would have been a fitting comparison.

Seriously though, I used to buy Hellmann’s mayonnaise by the gallon from Sam’s Club. I put it on every single burger and sandwich I ate and dipped my fries and chicken wings in it. At 2:30am I’d come home from a long night of drinking with my friends, heat up a microwave corn dog and dunk it straight into the gigantic jar of mayo. I even came up with my own precise mixture of mayonnaise and ketchup that I referred to as “metchup.” Since going through a gallon of mayonnaise every couple months isn’t exactly the most healthy thing in the world I’ve since cut back, but Hellmann’s will always hold a special place in my heart.

Where was I going with this story again? Oh yeah, they recently launched a limited-edition Southwestern ranch flavored mayonnaise and sent a bottle of it my way. Taste wise it definitely packs a little more of a kick than their regular mayonnaise. Hellmann’s actually suggests mixing one bottle of their new mayo with a cup of salsa and three tablespoons of chopped cilantro if you’re looking to make a super fast southwestern salsa dip, but even on its own it already tastes pretty good. I just hope this one small bottle doesn’t send me spiraling back into my Hellmann’s mayonnaise addiction….

    Nick,
    Your metchup sounds a lot like Utah fry sauce. We put that stuff on everything, from hamburgers to fries to whatever else your heart desires. Just a pinch of pickle brine really takes it up a notch.

    Hellman’s is the only brand of mayo I’ll consume (if I have a choice in the matter) as the other brands tend to use soy oil instead of canola (or the even healthier olive oil) at least here in BC, Canada. Not sure what they put in it elsewhere.

    Mixing ketchup and mayo together in the right proportions makes for a cheap thousand island dressing for those in a pinch.

    Mayo addiction: +1 – I love the stuff myself, and it goes great with potatoes.
