Zesty Chipotle Lime Crema

“I love this combination of ingredients and have used them before in an aioli . I was inspired by a couple of other recipes to mix them in sour cream instead to make a delicious crema. This makes a delicious topping for tacos, enchilada's or anything else you want to add some pizzaz to! One chipotle is plenty spicy for us, add more to your personal taste.”

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with an immersion blender or in a regular blender. Make sure all ingredients have fully blended, no lumps. Serve or chill for later - will thicken slightly.
  2. Notes:.
  3. This is a recipe that really flexes to personal taste.
  4. Add a little zest unless you like a lot - then add more.
  5. Start with juice from half the lime , one garlic and one chipotle, ziz it up, then add what you like more of - I like 1 chipotle, 2 garlic and juice from the whole lime and zest from half a lime, but lime sizes vary greatly and so does how much juice you get. You want a tangy, garlicky crema with some pow from the chipotle.
