I personally love Chuy’s they do a wonderful job on Tex Mex food. They have some of the best chips, they are thin and crispy. They make delicious margaritas, and they also do an amazing job on their enchiladas.

For me, their creamy jalapeno dip is one of their best menu items that they have. This sauce goes well with chips, on top of tacos, on top of a taco salad, or really just about any Tex Mex dish you want to prepare.

This sauce is made fresh, and guess what, you can prepare this yourself it is quick and easy to prepare. This creamy jalapeno dip will stay fresh in your refrigerator for a few days.

You will need a few simple ingredients you will need sour cream, mayonnaise, lime, fresh cilantro, pickled jalapeno peppers, and some dry buttermilk ranch dressing mix.

The pickled jalapeno peppers are very important. These peppers are perfect for recipes. The pickling process seems to take away the sharp heat that jalapenos can often have. The pickled jalapenos are perfect for nachos and all sorts of Tex Mex and Mexican food.

I am also using the Hidden Valley Original Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix, 16 Ounce. I find this is typically available at Sam’s and sometimes I have found it in my local grocery stores such as Kroger, or HEB.

You can use the Hidden Valley Ranch Mix in all sorts of recipes, so it is an ingredient I like to have in my pantry. I use it for my Original Taco Soup recipe. I think it is cheaper to buy in bulk rather than purchasing in the individual packages.

This recipe is so easy to make, you can put this dip together in less than five minutes. I like to leave me rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.

    Add buttermilk to the recipe. Will cut the heat down, you can also try a few fresh jalapeños vs. the pickled jalapeños. Pickled jalapeños have a tendency to be very spicy, as well as the juice. Or just cut the measurement for the pickled jalapeños down. I do both from time to time and tastes perfect. Be sure to use the hidden valley ranch dressing. The creamy jalapeno does not have the same taste with the buttermilk packets. Trust this word of advise. Hope this helps you in the future.
