Crazy Cooking Challenge: Roasted Jalapeno Ranch Dressing

We have the New and Improved Crazy Cooking Challenge this month.  One of the changes is that we are now able to use any recipe, not just a recipe from another "unprofessional" blog or we can create our own recipe.  That's the option I used for this last minute challenge; my own creation of Jalapeno Ranch Dressing.  Is it all that original?? I doubt it.  I mean, face it - there are just so many ways one can make ranch dressing.  I think I would have liked a little more oomph to it but since I need to be also preparing food my hubby will eat this worked out nicely.
 I served it over some bean quesadillas and thought it was the perfect addition to them.

Roasted Jalapeno Ranch Dressing
Makes a bit over 1/2 cup

1 to 2  roasted jalapenos, seeded
1 garlic clove
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2-3 Tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
kosher salt, to taste

In a food processor, or blender, place in all ingredients and process until smooth.
