“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!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Finely chop the garlic, jalapeno, and cilantro (you can use a blender or food processor but I like the little chunks).
  2. 2. Add sour cream, ranch seasoning, lemon juice, buttermilk and stir.
  3. 3. Add milk 1/4 cup at a time until desired consistency (about 1 cup total).
  4. Refrigerate until serving (best if made a day ahead).
