Jalapeno Ranch aka {Chuys Sauce}

This next dip is one of my favorites. I love me some creamy jalapeno dip {aka Chuy's sauce}. I thought while you were at the store getting the cilantro for the queso you might as well grab an extra bundle to make this dip.

Ingredients:
1 pkg Ranch dressing mix
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayo
1/2-1 cup of milk
1 bunch of cilantro
4 tablespoons of pickled jalapenos
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp of granulated garlic (I've used fresh garlic and it gives you crazy dragon breath the next day.)
1 tablespoon of lime juice.

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender and run it until you get a smooth consistency. I add the first 1/2 cup of milk before blending and slowly add the rest while blending until I get the consistency I'm wanting.The dip always thickens once refrigerated.
This is one of those recipe's you might have to scoop out a bit and give it a taste to see if you need to add anything. I typically end up adding more jalapenos as I go. If you use pickled jalapenos you might want to cut back on the lime juice. The pickled jalapenos have a tangy flavor because of the vinegar and it can get to strong with the added lime juice.
Oh yummy! I can't wait to eat some of this. This is a dangerous dip for me to make if I'm home alone and not taking it anywhere because I just can't control myself.

I eat this with extra thin tortilla chips but my husband likes it with potato chips. Really....you can't go wrong.
