I’m a real sucker for sauces, salsas, and dips. I can’t say that everyone else in my family is the same that way. So as I typically do, I scavenge through my refrigerator looking for things that can be used up, or things that I can come up with in terms of new ideas. I remember this clearly. It was taco Tuesday night at my house. Who can forget taco Tuesday’s right? This is when I found some cilantro and some sour cream that needed to be used before it went bad. Are you like me when it comes to sour cream? You use a tablespoon or so, then it sits there only for you to keep looking at the expiration date? Well, no more!
This recipe is way too simple to put together and lasts a handful of days in the refrigerator. It’s great on tacos, baked potatoes, and drizzled probably on anything that sour cream would lend a hand to.
Let’s get started.
- 1 cup of sour cream
- 1/2 bunch cilantro, washed and chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 whole lime, juiced
- salt to taste
That’s it! What is not to love about that!
Add the cilantro, garlic, and lime juice to a food processor. Pulse and spin that baby until everything is nice and fine.
Add the sour cream to a bowl and fold in the garlic, cilantro, and lime mixture. Give it a good stir until everything is nice and smooth. Give a taste, and season with salt.
Hope you enjoy!
