There is a taco truck that comes around in Decorah Iowa called Lesley’s Taco Truck. Our family is crazy for their food and eats it as often as we can.
Kalissa knows Lesley, the owner, personally, and one-day Kalissa asked Lesley what the “white stuff” in the burritos was. Lesley said Mexican Creme`. We had no idea what that was so googled it.
We came up with this recipe…
Take two cups of Heavy Whipping Cream. I use a four-cup pyrex bowl to make mine. Add two Tablespoons of plain yogurt. Mix it together.
Put the lid on. Let that sit on the counter of your kitchen for 36-48 hours.
It will get thick like this…
Mix in some salt and lime juice to taste. (You can use lemon juice or vinegar if you don’t have lime juice)
This has become a staple at our house…and at Karl’s house…and Kalissa’s house, and Kelli’s house. All of us love it. We have plans to introduce it to Kayla and Buck’s house.
All of us love it. We use it in any dish we would regularly use sour cream in. I’m sure you could add cilantro, garlic powder, or anything else to flavor it the way you’d like it. For now, we mostly use it as is.
I highly recommend giving this a try. All of us have pretty much given up regular sour cream in favor of the Creme`. That is saying a lot as our family has often thought of sour cream as their own independent food group.
Although we LOVE this, it is still not as good as Lesley makes. That’s okay…we love this and thank Lesley for telling us there was such a thing as Mexican Creme`…and it still makes us want to order Lesley’s AMAZING burritos.
