Lime Crema on Nachos

For the Cilantro lime crema recipe you will need these ingredients:

Sour Cream - You can also use Mexican sour cream, Mexican crema, greek yogurt

Mayonnaise - Replace regular mayo with Keto mayonnaise for keto diets

Lime - Zest lime first then squeeze your lime for about 1-2 tablespoons of juice.

Garlic - Finely minced, crushed, or powder

Salt - regular salt or sea salt

Cilantro - cilantro lovers can add more instead of 1 tablespoon. For those who don't like cilantro, you can leave it out or substitute it with 1 teaspoon of chopped mint or parsley.

Lime Crema Recipe

  • Zest the lime, then squeeze the juice into a small bowl.

  • In a bowl whisk the sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic or garlic powder, lime zest, lime juice, and salt. Stir in finely chopped cilantro. 

  • Use immediately or store in a covered bowl in the fridge until ready to serve

  • 🌶Tip: Lime crema will naturally thicken in the fridge, pull out the whisk and add 1/4 tsp of water or lime juice to thin out the sauce if this happens.
