Though I’d like to pretend it’s the vegetables I am interested in, I have to own up…For me, it’s all about the dip. Today I am sharing one of my favorite veggie tray dip recipes – Jalapeno Ranch Dip.

This has just enough zing to make it special, but it’s mild enough that spice wimps like me can enjoy it as well…

Jalapeno Ranch Dip Recipe


2 c.     mayonaise
1/2 c. buttermilk
1/2 c. chopped jalapeno (for a more mild flavor, remove the seeds)
1/2     chopped Roma tomato
1/4 bunch chopped cilantro
2 packets dry ranch dressing mix (I use Hidden Valley)

optional: add cumin to taste


1. Mix first five ingredients together in a blender.
2. Whisk in ranch dressing
3. Chill and serve

I decided to serve my jalapeno dip inside a pepper for a little color and the orange is just perfect for this time of year. What do you think?

What’s your favorite go to dish for entertaining? Do you go with something more savory or sweet?
