Cilantro Jalapeño Ranch Sauce

I dined at a popular Tex-Mex chain a few weeks ago and they have a signature cilantro cream sauce that is delicious. Now, y’all know that when I taste something that is really good -I immediately think of ways to make it at home. This recipe can be used as a salad dressing , a taco sauce, or for whatever you please. To me, it’s best on a taco-but I will let you get creative with ways to use it. It has buttermilk, fresh cilantro, and jalapeño which all combine perfectly to make a sauce that will be one of your favorites to make at home. As always, please let me know how it turns out for you -and enjoy !


◦ 1 packet of ranch salad dressing mix (1 ounce )

◦ 1 cup buttermilk

◦ 1 cup mayonnaise

◦ 3 tablespoon jalapeño , diced

◦ 1/4 cup fresh cilantro

◦ 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

◦ 1 teaspoon Louisiana hot sauce


1. In a small bowl, mix ranch packet, buttermilk and mayonnaise together until fully combined

2. In a blender or food processor, add ranch , jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice , and hot sauce -then blend/ purée until sauce is fully combined (about 1-2 minutes

3. Refrigerate until ready to serve and enjoy !
