Chuy's Dip

I made the most delicious dip. It's very similar to the Creamy Jalapeno dip that Chuy's serves. Somewhere online, I found a recipe that claimed to be a copycat but after reading the ingredients I knew it wasn't even close (there are no tomatoes in the restaurant version). The comments were much more helpful. I tweaked the one that sounded the closest and I think this is very close to the real thing...Creamy Jalapeno Dip:
16 oz [light] sour cream
1 packet Ranch dip mix
2-3 large jalapenos, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced (I used 2 but next time would probably do 3, I really like garlic. Just taste as you go.)
1/3 cup chopped, fresh cilantro
Juice of a lime
Milk, optional

Mix the first 6 ingredients together. Use the milk to thin the dip to whatever consistancy you desire. I added maybe a couple of tablespoons. It was thicker than Chuy's version, but I was OK with that. Serve with tortilla chips. Simple. Easy. Delish.

We've used the tomatillo version... it actually comes out REALLY close to the Chuy's version. Yum!

Here in Madrid they do not have sour cream, do you think I could replace it with cream cheese?

Paulamovil: I think plain yogurt would be a good substitute. Cream cheese might be too strong of a flavor? Let me know how it turns out for you :)
