Jalapeno Dip

This is my latest obsession

I didn't think I would like it
when the waitress at Chuy's put it on our table

but I was hooked!

I decided to try to make a healthier version of it
This can be used as a salad dressing, dip
I even added some to tunafish to give it a zip

1 1/3 C Fage 0% Greek yogurt
1/3 C Buttermilk
jalapeno (chopped in a can ) to taste - I start w 1/2 tsp
4 oz can diced green chiles
1/2 bunch cilantro chopped or more to taste
1 one oz pkg Ranch Dressing Mix or 1 Tbsp of make your own*

Add all ingredients to a blender and give it a whirl 

It will be runny at first but will firm up
after cooled
