Creamy Jalapeno Ranch Dressing

We’re kind of salad snobs at our house.  We much prefer homemade croutons and dressing over the store-bought variety.  Store-bought croutons are gross, they are hard as rocks!  But this isn’t about croutons.
No.  It’s about dressing.  Creamy jalapeno ranch dressing, to be exact.  This stuff is excellent, it’s one of those things that you could probably put on anything and make it taste better!  It’s great on salads, with things like tacos or taquitos, or even just as a dip for some tortilla chips.  It only lasts a couple of days at our house, so if you’re wanting to try it you better make it yourself!
