This creamy jalapeno cilantro dip was shared with us by a good friend and neighbor. We have been making this for years and absolutely love it. The only thing we changed was to use fresh jalapenos and serranos instead of canned. This change makes it much more fresh tasting. Fresh, creamy, spicy and addictive! We make this year round but it’s great for those game day parties.
Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dip
It’s super easy to make and a big hit at gatherings. Just place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. No large chunks.
This creamy jalapeno cilantro dip is best after allowing the flavors to come together for a few hours. Or better yet, overnight! It makes a great sauce for our Sheet Pan Beef Nachos or Chicken Burrito Bowls.
The longer it sits the spicier it becomes, be warned. From what I understand it’s almost a copycat of Chuy’s creamy jalapeno dip. I wouldn’t know, we have never been. Sad, right?
Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy! If you prefer not to use the fresh peppers try this recipe from WhoNeedsACape.
- 1 cup real mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 2-3 fresh Jalapeño peppers, seeded, deveined and chopped
- 1-2 fresh Serrano peppers, seeded, deveined and chopped
- 1 small bunch of fresh cilantro
- 1-1 oz. package of dry ranch dip mix
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours to allow the flavors to combine. (It's even better overnight.)
Enjoy as a chip dip, salad dressing, or sauce.
If you like extremely spicy food, leave the seeds and veins intact. Be warned! You can also cut back on the amount of cilantro, I happen to love it.
