Recipe Notes:

There are a lot of recipes for avocado crema floating around on the internet, and for good reason! Most Latin American countries have a version of their own. Trying this condiment over the years in various cuisines made us want to try and make at home.

So, in short, you’re trying a potentially inauthentic, American version – BUT, we are quite confident that you will love it anyway! We always like to make a note when we don’t come up with the concept of recipe ourselves. If you guys grew up eating something like this, let us know in the comments! We love hearing your stories, especially when they are fond memories from around your dinner table. 🙂

Cilantro: If you don’t have cilantro, or don’t like it, first of all, we are sad for you, but we get it. This crema will be still be delicious without it.

Food Processor: We love to use our food processor for a ton of recipes, and this is a perfect application. Use a blender if you don’t have one to get a super creamy consistency that makes this side irresistible!

Let’s Make It!


Add your avocado, sour cream, garlic and cilantro to the food processor. It would help to rough chop your cilantro and garlic a little too.

Add your oil, salt and lime juice.

Pulse for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until everything is incorporated. Scrape the sides, adjust seasonings to your preference, and pulse for another 30 seconds or so.

Serve as a condiment to many dishes, like this Spicy Baked Cod with Lime and Rainbow Vegetables, these Taco Stuffed Peppers, or these Pressure Cooker Pork Carnitas. You could also enjoy with a salad, as a dipping sauce for vegetables, alongside your eggs, tacos, nachos and much more!

Enjoy! This should keep for about 5-7 days in the fridge. You can squeeze extra lime juice over the top to slow the avocados from browning.
