Avocado Crema



My family loves Mexican food and I am a lover of guacamole. Avocado crema is the smooth creamy version in my opinion of guacamole. This recipe is quick and easy. It is a mixture of ripe avocados, sour cream, lime juice garlic powder, kosher salt, and black pepper. You can use yogurt instead of sour cream. I do add a pinch of cayenne pepper to give it a little kick but, that is optional.


Avocado crema is a great condiment that can be served over taco's, grilled salmon, Quesadilla, steaks, crab cakes, shrimp, and even used as a salad dressing. It is my go to condiment when I want to add tangy zest to my dish.

Did You Know!


When an avocado is cut, there is a chemical reactions taking place. An enzyme in the flesh reacts to the oxygen, causing the guacamole that contact the oxygen to turn a brown color.





Quick Tip


To avoid that reaction pour a thin layer of water, lime, or lemon juice over the guacamole to form a barrier with the air. Cover your guac with plastic wrap, to prevent air pockets or try storing in an airtight container
