    momaphet's Note:

    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.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cup

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 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. 2
      Notes:.
    3. 3
      This is a recipe that really flexes to personal taste.
    4. 4
      Add a little zest unless you like a lot - then add more.
    5. 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.

      I made this today for a potluck to go along with a dish of enchiladas. People loved it. I used Mexican crema instead of sour cream, as I can get it easily. It went on the enchiladas but also with tortilla chips and cut-up veggies. Easy way to provide a nicely spicy accompaniment.
