There is no exact science to avocado crema. It sounds like a difficult task, but in actuality it can be as simple as a refrigerator clean out.

What you need:

  1. avocados
  2. salt
  3. creamy dairy product (whipping cream, sour cream, crème fraiche, plain yogurt, etc.)
  4. fresh lime juice

To make the crema, first add the avocado and mash with a fork or potato masher. Then combine the remaining three ingredients. Once the four items are thoroughly mixed, add these extras if more flavor is desired.

Optional additions:

chopped cilantro

chopped serrano or jalapeno peppers

cayenne

cumin

chili powder

Avocado crema is a versatile condiment. It can be paired with a variety of dishes, such as:

avocado toast

leftovers taquitos

tacos

dip with tortilla chips or vegetables

cornmeal chicken pepper soup

sandwiches (turkey, chicken, vegetarian)

runny egg

The possibilities with avocado crema are endless. All that’s left is the confidence to walk into the kitchen, combine the four basic ingredients and experiment with the components available. Taste that bad boy until you can’t stop eating it, because that’s when the avocado crema is finished.
