Paula’s Green Dip (Chuy’s jalapeno ranch dip)

Don came home from work after a Boss's day luncheon saying he'd had a dip that was 'just like Chuy's'. I asked him if he got the recipe for me. He had already asked the guy for it! :-) That's my man! This IS just like Chuy's restaurant. My other recipe doesn't call for the tomatillo sauce and I think that is what makes the difference!

  2. Can you tell me how many servings this makes? I was thinking about making this for my family Christmas but didn't know if I should double. Thank you! I absolutely LOVE Chuy's so I am excited to try this!

    Can you also give me a more specific measurement on the cilantro as well. Thank you!

  3. This makes a good size batch--would feed a crowd for sure. You buy cilantro by the 'bunch'. Down here we can get it for $.29 each. If you get it another way, a HUGE handful works just fine.

  4. My family likes this recipe better than chuys. I use 3 fresh JalepeƱos and I use the entire garlic bulb. Makes your breath like a dragon, but it's awesome!
