Hello Chuy's.  You had me at salsa and chips.  You made me fall in love even more when you brought your creamy jalapeno dip to my table. The closest Chuy's to me right now is in Round Rock, about 45 minutes away. When I move back to Korea in a few months the closest one to me will still be in Round Rock, and that is quite the commute for creamy jalapeno dip. So you can only imagine how excited I was when my friend Roxanne brought her creamy jalapeno cilantro dip to a porch party one evening.  The crowd went wild.  We beg her to make it for every event now.  She is happy to comply.
If you too have been craving a little creamy jalapeno dip this version is super easy to make - it may not be exactly what they serve at Chuy's, but it is pretty darn close.

What you need:
mixing bowl
an immersion blender  (I'm sure a regular blender will work fine too.)
6 oz sliced jalapenos
1 bunch of cilantro
1 package ranch dip
16 oz sour cream (yes, you can use light)

Toss all ingredients in the bowl. Blend until creamy.

BAM!  Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dip!  Just like Chuy's (almost).
