Lime Crema for Chili, Tacos, Fajitas and More

This combination of sour cream and lime is to die for (if you like limes lol). I use it instead of plain sour cream in lots of recipes, and have changed it to tangerine, lemon or other citrus fruits as well. 3 recipes on zaar use it, but it deserves its own spot as a condiment in its own right

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk all three ingredients together and serve with any Tex Mex or Mexican recipe instead of plain sour cream.

Delish! Definitely a must with fajitas or tacos -- the lime really adds so much flavor. Will be using this recipe from now on. Made for Everyday is a Holiday, May, 2014.

Giving this three stars cuz my husband said it was good. I didn't really care for it. We make another sauce with mayo, lime, and red chili powder for fish or shrimp tacos that I perfer better.
