I gave this three stars because it's a good beginning. I used a combination of a few of these recipes and my wife swore I got it from Chuy's. 1 package Ranch dip seasoning, 16 oz sour cream, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/4 cup buttermilk (optional), 1/2 cup jalapeño (finely chop), 1/3 cup cilantro (finely chop), 2 cloves garlic (finely chop). First, finely chop cilantro, garlic, jalapeño. I do NOT blend it because it turns too green. You'll notice at Chuy's that it is white with green parts. Then mix the rest in. The buttermilk thins it out and gives it some tang (I personally like it thicker for a dip instead of a dressing). I noticed I didn't put any salt and pepper in -- I'm kind of surprised by that. Thanks for everyone who submitted ratings for your help.
