jalapeno ranch dressing/dip


My parents hosted Christmas on Sunday for my Dad's side of the family. 

A week or so ago I asked my mom what I needed to bring and she requested I bring chips.  She told me she got her hands on a recipe for Chuy's jalapeno ranch dressing.  I thought about that dip for over a week.  



Have you ever had it?  








It is so good and it's a festive shade of green.  It's perfect for this time of year.



We all loved the jalapeno dip and the bowl was empty in no time at all.  She gave me the recipe and Gary and I made it last night. 

This is what you need:

1 1/3 cups of mayonnaise

1/3 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup chopped jalapenos

1 small can chopped green chilis

1/2 cup cilantro

1 packet ranch dressing seasoning

I poured all the ingredients into my blender and blended them up.


It's that easy.  

Gary and I tasted our batch and decided to add more cilantro and jalapenos.  
We like it spicy!




We made bean and cheese quesadillas and they were so good served with the jalapeno ranch dip.  I think the kids are starting to like spicy food because they enjoyed the dip too!  

Thanks to my mom I am sharing this great recipe with y'all!
