    It was good. I made it the first the first time following the exact recipe but then I modified it more to my liking. It was veryyyy thin the first time - good for fish tacos but anything else should have a thicker sauce imo. Basically what I did is put 1/4 a cup of sour cream, 1/8 cup of cilantro (I used 1/4 in the first recipe and it was too much) 1 lime, half a jalapeno, salt & pepper in a blender. I mixed it until smooth and then slowly mixed in 3/4 a cup of sour cream with a spoon to get a thicker consistency.

    We were so looking forward to this with all the five star reviews, and yet not a single person in my home liked it. I'm not sure what happened. I followed the recipe exactly. I even made it a day in advance like some reviewers suggested. Kind of sad that I used the last of my cilantro from the garden on it. We love cilantro, but evidently not in this.

    This recipe is also great with Greek yogurt as a substitute for the sour cream!

    Love this! I served it on blackened salmon tacos topped with a roasted corn salsa! I, personally, prefer a thicker crema so I added avocado. I also felt like it was missing a certain depth of flavor so I added a clove of garlic. It went from yummy to delish.

    Our local Cuban taco place has a "cilantro dressing" that I was trying to duplicate. This is pretty close. We eat it on ropa vieja tacos and fish or shrimp tacos.
