Creamy Jalapeño Dip

"Creamy Jalapeño Dip is an all-natural copycat recipe of the popular dip from Chuy's, made with just a handful of real ingredients including fresh jalapeños, cilantro, and salsa verde!"

Creamy Jalapeño Dip

Servings – 10 serving gs = 2 Cups Prep Time – 15 Minutes ChillingTime – 4 hours is good / 8 hours is best Ingredients:

  • 2 fresh jalapeños, *see Notes below

  • ⅓ cup packed fresh cilantro leaves

  • ½ cup good-quality mayonnaise

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1/3 cup salsa verde (tomatillo salsa)

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


In a blender or food processor, pulse the jalapeños until finely minced. Add the cilantro and pulse until chopped.

Add the remainder of the ingredients and blend/process until mixture is smooth and completely puréed. Adjust seasonings to taste, adding more salt and pepper if necessary.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4, but ideally 8 or more, hours. Serve with tortilla chips.


Individual jalapeños can vary in their heat levels. That being said, as a general rule:

  • For a mild dip, scrape out and discard the seeds & membranes from your jalapeños.

  • For a medium dip, leave the seeds & membranes intact in one jalapeño and scrape them out/discard from the second jalapeño.

  • For a spicy dip, leave all of the seeds & membranes intact. Or you can even add an additional jalapeño for extra heat, if that's your preference.

  • The chilling time is critical to this recipe, in order for the flavors to blend and develop.

  • This dip will slightly thicken after chilling in the fridge for several hours. However, it is not intended to be (and will never turn into) an overly thick dip.
