Jalapeno Dipping Sauce


This copycat recipe of Chuy’s Jalapeno Dipping Sauce has a couple of little twist to it to make it versatile to use on everything from a chip dip, veggie dip and taco topping sauce. Lets just say I have made this THREE times this week! Yesterday I made it and took it to our 30th college reunion tailgate at Auburn University and it was a huge hit!



  • 16 oz. light sour cream
  • 1 pkg. (1 oz.) ranch dip mix
  • 2 whole large jalapenos, seeded
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 whole lime, juiced
  • 2-4 Tbsp. buttermilk (must be buttermilk)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Tortilla chips, for serving


Blend the jalapenos, garlic, cilantro in a food processor and chop until fine. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well blended and chill for at least 1 hour to set.  Serve with chips or veggies or taco topping.
