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.

The pickled jalapeno peppers are very important. These peppers are perfect for recipes. The pickling process seems to take way 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 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 No Time Taco Soup. 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.

    I made this tonight. Me and my husband go to Chuy’s just for their creamy jalapeño dip. This recipe was absolutely horrible! It tasted like I put dill weed in it. I made it 2hrs. before we ate. We just dumped it.

    If you add the juice from the pickled jalapenos, and i added 2 small tomatillos cut up to the food processor before you blend, it is very close to Chuy’s.

    OMG…I go to Chuy’s just for this dip; I hate Chuy’s food otherwise. I made this dip and practically licked the bowl clean when it was gone! ALready planning to make another batch this week. I put in 3 large garlic cloves – which my husband thought was too much – but not for me; it was very pronounced and I loved it. If I know it was this easy to make this dip, I could have spared my previous Chuy’s visits!

    I make this at least once a month. The only thing I add that’s not on the ingredient list is garlic powder and a little bit of sugar. It’s important this sits in the fridge for at least three hours for the flavors to marry. Excellent recipe!

    I made this last night for a group dinner and it was very yummy. Personally, I thought it was a bit on the salty side, so curious how I could turn down the saltiness. I’d also like a little more kick. It was pretty mild. I did use “tame” jalapenos, so maybe I’ll try it with spicier peppers next time. Thanks for sharing!

      Hidden Valley has 2 different kinds of ranch powder.The kind that is marketed as DIP mix is exponentially saltier and not as good. If you used that instead, it could explain the taste difference.

      I said the same about the salt. I tried using a few fresh peppers without the seeds and was pleased. A lot of the sodium is in the pickled peppers.

  6. Carolyn

    I tweaked this a bit for an even more authentic Chuy’s taste! I increased the pickled jalapeños to one cup and added 2 teaspoons of the pickled jalapeño juice to the recipe.

    Blend the heck out of this in the food processor and it is superb!!!

  7. David Braley

    You are missing that it also has 1/2 cup of tomatilla salsa in the chuy’s recipe. Had a friend who worked there years ago and told me this and since I’ve seen it on other websites

    My first time to eat at a Chuy’s while on vacation in NC. I loved the dip!!! I immediately got on my phone to look i
    up any type of receipe for it and found your website!! Thanks so much. Will try it when I get home!!! M

    I have made this a few times now, I LOVE it, my coworkers love it and my husband gets mad if I take it all to work with me cause he loves it too. We use fresh jalapenos and just a bit more lime juice. THANK YOU.

      • Allison

        The lime juice is plenty acidic. I used several cloves of fresh garlic, which as others have mentioned isn’t on the list of ingredients.
