"This stuff is habit-forming! This is the best copycat recipe I've found, as it uses homemade ranch dressing; bottled ranch just doesn't taste very good, in this dip."

"LOVE Chuy's Creamy Jalopeno Dip and have been looking for the recipe for a long time. This is the closest one I've found, BUT its missing garlic. I'm surprised nobody has said that yet?! I eat Chuy's often & I'm quite positive there is garlic in this and when I added some garlic powder to this recipe it made it SOOOO much better! Thanks for the recipe!"
"just add half a squeezed lime and it's perrrrfect!"
"I tried this and LOVED it. Honestly, I like it better than Chuys original recipe. Maybe because it was spicier than the original. Then I made it again but forgot to buy the powder ranch and only had bottled ranch......was NOT the same. Though people who ate it didn't know the difference and they loved it. Oh yeah, I loathe cilantro with every fiber of my being, so I personally have chosen to omit it."
"Love this... It was always my Fav when i lived in Houston"
"Very good dip. I made for a family get together, everyone really liked it. I would make this again. Love the taste of cilantro."
"It cracks me up that everyone misses the main ingredient in this dip: Tomatillos! It also doesn't have chiles at all!"
"Oh my goodness, this is good. I made this for DD's NYE party and served it with corn chips. It was eaten by all and enjoyed. I really liked it the next day on Nachos!!!!! OMG, it was to die for. And better the second day. Thank you for sharing, I like to have it on hand all the time now."
"This is so delicious just the way it is! Totally addicting!! Love how easy and quick it is to make!! Will definitely be using this recipe over and over again. Thank you!!"
"I did not care for this recipe, it called for 1 1/3 C. mayonnaise which over powered all the other ingrediants. i will keep searching till i find one i like."
"This dip is wonderful. I serve it with celery, carrot and cucumber sticks. I think it would be delicious on taco salad. I'm serving it to my bunco group. Anxious to see what they think.

"Great dip and so easy to make! Thanks"
"I was so happy to see this recipe as my sister and I really enjoyed Chuy's salads in Houston and this was our favorite dressing. I made it as you wrote it and also added chopped garlic, about 1/3 cup of chopped onion, and juice of half a lemon before I blended it just because I always have to change something!! It was FABULOUS!!! and tastes just as I remembered it... Thanks for posting!!"
"Fantabulous dip, with lots of cilantro!"
"This was oh my goodness spicy. I did add some garlic, like another reviewer mentioned. I did not have the cilantro, so that was omitted. Next time I will remove the spine and seeds of the jalapeno to tone it down a bit. Otherwise this was good. Used it to dip chips and veggies. I also broiled some chicken breast with the dip spread over them and topped with some cheese. Can you say "Yum!" Thank you for introducing this great dip. To be totally fair, I have never been to Chuy's so I can not comment on authenticity."
"Made as written, and found the buttermilk and ranch a little overpowering for my taste. But, all in all an excellent dip! Will make again."
"I made half a recipe and just put it into the container with a hand blender. Great with tortillas or chips. DH loved it."
"Way too much Cilantro Leaf! All I tasted afterwards was Cilantro."
"I live in Austin and just love love this dip every time I go to Chuy's. I made it the other day (and only just realized I did a 1/3 cup mayo and not 1 1/3 cup) but I did find the chilies to be REALLY hot... so, the second time I made it, I cut them out (and put a tiny extra cilantro) it's AMAZING! love it!"
"This would make a good chicken enchilada sauce but didn't remind us too much of the creamy jalapeno dip from Chuys."
