Chuy’s just opened up here in The ‘Ham.  Chuy’s, for those of you that don’t know, is an eclectic Tex-Mex chain out of Texas.  They recently started expanding outside of Texas and Birmingham was lucky enough to get one of the first non-Texas locations!  Chuy’s is located at The Summit.  It has the BEST view of any restaurant in town.  It overlooks 280, and the outdoor deck/seating will be amazing when it finally cools off. 

We finally made it to dinner at Chuy’s a couple of weeks ago (the wait has been horrendous). We both really enjoyed the food, but we both loved the jalapeno dip they serve with the chips and salsa.  It was crazy good! 

I immediately went on the hunt for the recipe.  I found a few copycat recipes and settled on one from The Tasty Kitchen.  Jackpot!  It tasted exactly like the jalapeno dip at Chuy’s!  We couldn’t stop eating the stuff.  I decided to marinate some chicken in it and it was awesome!  I also made a little cheesy jalapeno bread.  YUM!  Jalapeno Dip overload!!

  1. Well we finally got a Chuy's here a month or two ago and Alexis and I just tried it last week. Loved the jalapeno sauce. I guessed it was a ranch sauce juiced up with jalapeno and cilantro. Pretty close based on your recipe!

    Merry Christmas to you, Chicken Legs and the critters!

  2. I just ran across your blog and have added it to my fave list 🙂

    I make this dip and it is a fave of ours — It is something requested when we attend a friend's house. I sometimes make it a bit thicker (not as runny as what is served at Chuy's) and do tortilla pin wheels with it.

    Looking forward to trying many of your receipes out on my family

  3. This looks SO good–thanks for the recipe! I loved Chuy's when I lived in Dallas. Plus, I saw that you're going to Superior this weekend, and that is hands down my favorite Mexican food! Enjoy it; I'm jealous!

  4. We have one not too far from our house and I love it. As far as Tex Mex goes, it's pretty good (on most days) The problem is it's so popular there's always an hour wait :9.

  6. Ohhhh, yum! I've never heard of the restaurant before, but am so glad you posted a recipe. This is a great one for football season. Thanks 🙂
