Cafe Rio House Ranch

We got together with a group of friends last week for "Cafe Rio Night". Living on the East Coast, we rarely get good TexMex, let alone Cafe Rio! We found some recipes through friends who swear it is the real deal. The food was great - but alas it was just not quite the same as Cafe Rio... At any rate, here is the recipe for Cafe Rio's House Ranch. If you can only get to Utah once a year like us, this will get you the fix you need!

Tomatillo Ranch Dressing
1 pkg of Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch Dressing dry mix
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tomatillos, peel
1 clove garlic, minced
½ bunch of cilantro, chopped
juice from one lime
1 small jalapeno, seeds and stem removed

Blend ingredients together in a blender. You can add additional mayonnaise if the dressing is too thin. Keep refrigerated.
