Chuy's Jalapeno Ranch Dip

Chuy's Jalapeno Ranch Dip
feeds a crowd

8 ounces mayonaise
24 ounces sour cream
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup tomatillo salsa
1 handful of cilantro
3 ranch dressing packets
1/2 cup pickled jalapenos

Combine all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.

Awhile back I had never eaten at a Chuy's Mexican food restaurant, but had heard the jalapeno ranch dip there was very good. Then I tried a friend's homemade version and loved it! When our new Chuy's opened here in town, I couldn't wait to go and try the jalapeno dip. Guess what?? I thought my friend's was better! :-) This is her recipe. I've made it twice now, and to scale it down a bit to serve just our family, I used 1 packet of ranch, 1/4 cup jalapenos and 1/4 of the other listed ingredients.
