Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dip

Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dip - Be WARNED! This dip is addictive! Fresh, creamy, spicy dip, sauce or dressing.

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.

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?
