Description

This avocado crema recipe is pale green and luxuriously creamy! This simple sauce is great for dolloping tacos, using as a dip, and more.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (or Mexican crema)
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice (1 large lime)
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated garlic (about 1/4 clove)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Cut the avocado in half, pit it, and scoop both halves into a food processor (or small blender*).
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Store in a covered jar for up to 5 days refrigerated: it stays green without special storage instructions (unlike guacamole). 

Notes

*Double the recipe for a standard sized blender.
