Jalapeno Chip Dip

24 oz. sour cream1 can diced jalapenos 1 can diced green chiles onion powder garlic powder coarse ground pepper Lawry's seasoning salt
To the sour cream add: 1/2 can jalapenos and some of the juice (adjust according to desired heat level), 1 can green chiles, palmful of onion powder, 1/3 palmful garlic powder, 1/3 palmful Lawry's seasoning salt, dash of pepper.
Be careful with garlic powder, start off with a small amount. If the dip tastes to "garlicky" the only way to fix it is to add more sour cream. I prefer eating this dip with Ruffles. The longer it sits the hotter it gets.
