Creamy Tomatillo Ranch Dressing
1 (1 oz.) package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise
1 large or 2 small tomatillos, peel the husk off
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
1.2 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 to 1 small jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed*
Blend all ingredients together in a blender. Store in the refrigerator. The dressing will get spicier the longer it sits.
*Notes- The heat of a jalapeno is in the seeds and ribs. If you like spicy and can handle the heat, add these.
