  • 2 Tomatillos
  • 1-3 Cloves Garlic (I use 3, but I like garlic!)
  • 1-2 Jalapeños (I use 2 because we like this with a zing!)

  • 1/2 C. Sour Cream
  • 1/2 C. Buttermilk
  • 1 Pkg. Dry Ranch Salad Dressing Mix
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/2 Bunch Cilantro


  • Take the husks off the tomatillos. 
  • Cut the tops off the tomatillos and quarter them.  Put them in the blender.
  • Roughly chop up 1-3 cloves of garlic and put in the blender.
  • Take the tops off the jalapeños and deseed them.  Cut them into chunks and put in the blender.

  • Juice one lime and add to the blender.
  • Turn blender on and blend for 1 minute.
  • Cut the stems off the cilantro and add to the blender.  Pulse for 10 seconds until cilantro is mostly chopped.
