I Dream of Creamy... Jalapeno!! Chuys Baby!!

If you have been to Chuy's, you have fallen in LOVE with their Creamy Jalapeno Sauce... It is beyond DELICIOUS!!

No one can perfect the "real" recipe quite like Chuy's, but this is a GREAT Copy-Cat recipe!

Creamy Jalapeno Sauce


3/4 cup mayonnaise (can use low fat, but NOT Miracle Whip)
3/4 cup milk
1 (1 ounce) packet hidden valley ranch dressing mix
1 (4 ounce) can green chilies
3/4 cup pickled jalapeno pepper
3 tablespoons cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon lime juice
Tortilla Chips


1. Mix mayo, milk and ranch mix. Let stand for at least an hour.
2. Chop chilies, jalapenos, and cilantro together.
(I'd use a blender, it gives the perfect consistency)
3. Mix in salt, garlic powder, and lime.
4. Add chile mixture to ranch.
5. Serve with tortilla chips.

The longer it sits, the hotter it gets.
The jalapeno amount can be adjusted... This dip is a bit spicy.

I believe Chuy's version is Sour Cream based, but this is an awesome version!!
Try it... One Bite & You're HOOKED!!

I've not been to Chuy's (or heard of it for that matter - must not have them in Minnesota) but this does sound good! Thanks for the recipe.

Oh, my gosh....this sounds AMAZING!! Thank you so much for posting this. My hubby and I are from CA where the Mexican food is phenomenal, but out here on the East Coast, the Mexican food just isn't very good. We make our own Mexican food and sauces, but this one sounds to die for....YUM! ~Liz
