Creamy Jalapeno is great for dipping veggies and chips. I make it for my family each week. We love it for dipping tortilla chips.

I wanted to make this lighter--I used 11 ounces of nonfat plain greek yogurt and made up the remaining ounces of half reduced fat mayonnaise and reduced fat sour cream. I also used homemade dry ranch seasoning mix. I made this last night as I wanted it to have time to sit and really "bloom" before I dug into it. I couldn't even tell that it was lowfat. AMAZING. I can't stop eating it. This is my new favorite ranch dip recipe. Read More

I was expecting a lot more from this recipe than I got. I used 3 WHOLE jalapenos (with seeds) and twice as much cilantro as called for. The ranch seasoning was WAY overpowering. I think next time I will use half a packet of the seasoning use a habenaro for a kick. I also had to add about 3 tablespoons of flour because it was way too ruiny for cracker toppings. I loved the cool flabvor of the cilantro followed by the zing of the pepper. If you are looking for a spicy dip this isn't for you. Unless you add a few other peppers to give it the kick you are expecting. Read More

This has quickly become a favorite. The dip is good for chips or vegetables or you can even use it on sandwiches and tacos. In a pinch you can make it without cilantro and it will still taste good. I followed the recipe exactly and it rated 5 stars "as is" but I have a few changes that I prefer: 1) Double the jalapeno! 2) Use half the dressing mix. 3) Substitute 1 clove fresh minced garlic for the garlic powder.

My garden is overflowing with jalapenos so I was looking for a new way to use them. This recipe is super quick and easy! I followed the recipe exactly (used low fat sour cream and the generic store brand ranch mix) and the longer I let it sit the better it got. Right after I made it I wasn't that impressed with the taste (tasted pretty much like ranch dip) but I just tried it again five hours later and the flavors are really improving! I can really taste the jalapeno and the cilantro now. I love spicy food and would say the heat is about a 3 on a scale of 1-10. Next time I will use fresh garlic instead of powdered. Definitely make this a day ahead of time to get the best flavor. Read More

AWESOME!! Reminds me of the dip Chuys in Texas makes. I recommend using fresh garlic instead of the powder or do fresh and powder garlic. I also blend it in my blender!!!! LOVE IT! Thanks for sharing:) Read More

I did not have any sour cream or dry ranch but I did the following changes and it came out great: added 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of ranch salad dressing garlic powder 1/2 tablespoon canola oil 2 tablespoons yogurt increased the number of jalapenos (I used 6 small ones from my garden but I love very spicy food) and used about 8 pickled jalapeno slices. I'm giving this 5 stars because ever since having creamy jalapeno dressing at Chuy's in Texas my wife and I have been in love with it. And I have been trying to re-create it. Read More

Great starting recipe that can be changed to your taste. I had Ranch dip instead of dressing mix so I was sparing with it. Used about 2/3-3/4 of the package and it was plenty of flavor. Since we love cilantro I used a FULL handful and it turned the dip a beautiful green speckle color. I omitted the garlic powder (even though I love garlic I just wanted to cilantro and pepper flavor to shine). I used one habanero pepper (those things are spicy) and it gave it some amazing kick. We used this sauce to top our southern style eggs benedict (cornbread roasted pork fried egg). UNBELIEVABLE!!! Read More
