Recipe of the month – Creamy Jalapeno Dip

img_2231If you have ever eaten a Chuy’s Mexican restaurant (a chain in the south and east of the United States), hopefully you have had a chance to try their Creamy Jalapeno Dip that the serve with their salsa and tortilla chips. I found this “copy-cat” recipe online and while it may not be the exact same as Chuy’s, the dip is pretty good.


1 cup sour cream

1 cup mayonnaise

1 packet of Ranch Dressing Mix

1 clove garlic, pressed

1/2 cup pickled jalapeno peppers (I couldn’t find pickled so I just used some from a jar.)

1/2 cup fresh cilantro

2 T. fresh lime juice


Wash and dry cilantro. Use only the tops of the cilantro stems, discarding the actual stems. Chop cilantro into course pieces. Place all items into a blender or food processor. Pulse 7 to 8 times to mix. Pour dip into a bowl and serve with tortilla chips.
