Copycat Chuy's Creamy Jalapeno Dip

Copycat Chuy's Creamy Jalapeno Dip created by mlesly

This is one of my favorite dips ever! I could eat it for a meal, really! I like it best with On The Border Cantina Thins. When I first made it, I followed another recipe but found it unlike the original Chuy's dip, so I altered it and I think this is right on the money! Make sure you add the milk a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency. (Most of the copycat recipes I've seen are thick, but I remember it being thin at Chuy's.) My husband high-fived me when he first tasted it. Enjoy!

  • Refrigerate until serving (best if made a day ahead).

    Made this but changed up the recipe just a little and still need to make changes for the next batch. <br/><br/>I followed the directions but instead of adding 1cup of milk I only added 1/2 a cup of milk. It didn't come out too runny. Next batch I will use 1/2 butter milk and 1/2 cup milk like i did this time. <br/><br/>What i will change is the garlic. I added 2 cloves and that was way too much!! I think this next time i will only add 1/2 a garlic clove. The original recipe calls for 2 cloves but you are left with a bad garlic after taste. <br/><br/>Other than the garlic issue this was a hit. My 7yr old son loved it.

    Made for the office Thanksgiving luncheon...too many "homestyle" dishes, so went with this as a little pre-lunch appetizer. They killed it! I did add 1/3 cup of green chiles, and omitted the 1 cup of milk, using a big "dollop" of mayo instead (I was afraid it would be soupy? maybe the original is supposed to be thin?). Anyway this was a big hit. Thanks for sharing! Husband's high-five was well deserved!
