Mexican Crema Recipe

Make Your Own Mexican Crema

On Saturday mornings, I often enjoy watching Marcela Valladolid's Mexican Made Easy on Food Network. She cooks authentic cuisine with traditional ingredients. One ingredient that she always uses is Mexican crema. Somewhere between sour cream and crème fraîche, Mexican crema is a slightly sour, cooling, and creamy condiment.

Although you can purchase it at many ethnic markets, it's super easy to make at home. It's also wildly delicious: I couldn't stop myself from dunking chips into it and eating it like a dip. It pairs wonderfully with all types of Mexican food, from steak tacos to cheese quesadillas — basically anything you would have sour cream with. Ready for the recipe?

Mexican Crema Recipe 2011-05-03 17:02:26

Ingredients

1 cup heavy cream
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Combine the ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 3 hours.
  2. Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy, or place in the refrigerator until ready to use. The crema will last as long as the sour cream that is used, so pay attention to the expiration date on the sour cream container. Let come to room temperature before eating.

Makes about 2 cups.
