This sauce is on repeat at my house
This sauce is inspired by all the great green sauces and creamy jalapeno chip dips that come before it. Most notably, Chuy’s Creamy Jalapeno Dip, and the Cilantro Lime Dressing from Costco. If you’re a fan of Costco, check out my guide to shopping at Costco once a month.

Creamy Jalapeno Ranch Sauce For Meats Recipe | Sip Bite Go
- 5 tbsp cilantro fresh, chopped
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 jalapeño seeds and pit removed, diced
- ½ lime juiced
- ½ tsp garlic salt
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp paprika
- Add all jalapeno ranch sauce ingredients to a blender and blend until mixture is smooth, about 30-45 seconds. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve, up to 3 days.
- Add an extra jalapeno if you want more of a kick.
- I usually trim then leave most of the stems on the cilantro. You don’t have to cut off only the leaves. Throw it all in the blender and it will taste great.
