Creamy Jalapeno Dip

I think I may have selective ADD.

Every time I go to clean my apartment, fold laundry, or do dishes I get so distracted by everything else and it takes me for.ev.er. It may or may not have something to do with the fact that I really don't like doing dishes, or folding laundry, and cleaning my floors always makes my back hurt. However, 3 hours later, it's all done (maybe). And now for my reward!

This dip is inspired by the Creamy Jalapeno Dressing from Chuy's, a Tex-Mex restaurant with an Elvis shrine at every location. The Creamy Jalapeno dip at Chuy's is affectionately nicknamed "Creamy Crack", seriously, you'll want to bathe in it.
This dip does not taste exactly like the one at Chuy's....they must have magical unicorn powder they put in theirs, but it's the closest that I have ever had.

Copy-Cat Creamy Jalapeno Dip
*I didn't make this one, a friend did, and I'm posting with his permission*

1 1/3 cup Mayo
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup cilantro
2 diced jalapenos- keep the seeds in if you can take the heat
2 whole green chiles from a can
1 packet McCormick Ranch dressing seasoning (1oz)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
A note from the creator- "last time, I swapped 1/3 cup mayo with 4oz of sour cream"
I'm going to say you can also use Plain Greek Yogurt as well.

I am not responsible for Creamy Jalapeno addictions or drownings, thank you. :-)
