Creamy Jalapeno Ranch Dip

184

There is this Tex-Mex restaurant just down the road from me called Chuys that introduced me to this creamy jalapeno ranch dip 10 years ago. Everyone raves about it, says they could swim in it or have it drenched over their heads and they’d be happy. I tend to agree. They serve it with their chips and salsa (but only if you ask). They also serve it as a dressing for their salads. I came across a recipe at one point, but I changed it around a bit and added the limes.

10
½ cup mayo
16 oz. sour cream
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup tomatilla salsa
1 small handful cilantro
5 T Ranch dressing mix (or 1.5 packets)
? cups pickled jalapeños
1 squeezed lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a bowl In a large blender or food processor, pulse til smooth Refrigerate 30 minutes serve with tortilla chips. This dip can continue to be refrigerated, covered, for about a week. If you want it more runny for a dressing, add more lime juice
