Onion powder and garlic powder. These are flavor enhancers and I would highly advise you to add them in the powder form as it also thickens the jalapeno sour cream dip.
Jalapeño pepper. I have used fresh peppers. You swap with pickled jalapeno, if the fresh ones are not available.
Mayonnaise. Mayonnaise adds an excellent texture to the dip. Store bought or homemade-either of them are great.
Cilantro. Optionally you may add to brighten up the flavors, and you may substitute with the dill leaves or chives.
