The Pioneer Woman Just Launched a New Line of Sauces and Dips with Kraft Heinz
The line includes two different ranch dressings and dips (Frontier Ranch and Spicy Southwestern Ranch) and four different kinds of BBQ sauces (Frontier, Apple Brown Sugar, Peach Whiskey and Honey Habanero). Later in May, you can also expect five new pasta sauces from The Pioneer Woman (Italian Sausage & Peppers, Rustic Bolognese, Marinara, Four Cheese, and Garden Vegetable).
“My number one motivation for creating this line with Kraft Heinz is that I’m a home cook with a family,” Ree told Kitchn. “While I would love to make every meal from scratch, I know it’s not possible all the time, and the convenience items I tend to reach for over and over again are the prepared sauces and dressings.”
Ree explains that she’s never been a big fan of bottled ranch dressings. “I think you can taste immediately that they’re not homemade.” She set a high bar for the dressings and was scrupulous in her testing. “One day I only ate ranch dressing for breakfast.” For the BBQ sauces, she really wants people to incorporate them into their own home cooking instead of just using them only as expected. “Cooking chicken things in a skillet and pouring a really flavorful BBQ sauce is one of my favorite approaches.”
When it comes to the pasta sauces, Ree admits she has a favorite from her new line. “My favorite right now is the Italian Sausage & Peppers. It’s delicious. It’s a little bit spicy, it has big chunks of Italian sausage — so it’s not a mystery meat situation.” Ree says the sauce is great with cooked pasta, of course, but it’s also delicious in casseroles like eggplant Parmesan.
“It’s really about having a little help with the things you’re already cooking,” she explains about her new line. “That’s really how I cook in the real world for my family, so that’s my primary drive behind all these products. ”
The ranch dressings and BBQ sauces retail for $3.29 and $2.99 respectively, and the pasta sauces will be $3.99.
