creamy tomatillo dressing-cafe rio knock off

For my own reference. L.H.-I will make this one and you can see which one you like better, since I've never made one. Yours looks great to me but we can compare the two. Wish me luck.

1/3 buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup cilantro
1/4 tsp. crushed jalapeno pepper*
1 Ranch mix packet
2 garlic cloves
3 tomatillos

Add all ingredients in a blender or food processor, blend until smooth. Makes about one quart.

* Recipe author used cushed red pepper flakes instead of the jalapeno ones and said that it tasted similar but a little less spicy.


  1. Just remember 1/4 tsp NOT 1/4 cup of pepper flakes like I did. I am a genius.

  2. Best dressing in town - however many pepper flakes are added.
