Mexican Crema

cremaIt occurred to me that a lot of folks (basically all who don’t live in the Southwest as I am privileged to) have never heard of crema.

Here is it available commercially, but up North you don’t have to sacrifice authenticity in your recipe because it is simple to make.

Basically it’s just sour cream thinned out with  cream.


  • 1 c sour cream
  • 1 c heavy cream
  • pinch of salt.


  1. Stir together and store in the fridge covered.

SERVES: 2 cups

NOTE: as you can see, the ratio is 1:1 so make in any quantity you need. Frankly it’s nicer than sour cream on any of your favorites like tacos because it spreads out more evenly and thus it flavors the dish better.
