A local (Tennessee/Florida) chain restaurant, Big River Grill, has a wondeful Jalapeno Ranch Salad Dressing. I have searched for the recipe and have yet to find one that matches their fantastic dressing, but this is, nevertheless, a great flavored dip or dressing. And with the Stupid Bowl coming up I thought it would make a great dip for your wings or other mandatory treats for the Big Game.
For those of you sensitive to a lot of heat, don't worry. You'll only get the flavor of the jalapeno, not the heat (unless you keep the seeds). And I added the dried onion for my own personal preference.
