When you want to wake-up an appetizer, main dish, or side dish that is a Mexican dish, this takes food to another level that your tired old sour cream just can't do. Great as a dipping sauce or to top any Mexican dish such as fish tacos, burritos, nachos, enchilada pie, etc. Anytime you'd ordinarily use sour cream or whenever you want a more gourmet topping or dip, this is fast and easy and a crowd pleaser.

Wow!! I used creme fraiche but had to make my own chipotle in adobo sauce and used more than two just tasting as I went so I don't know how many ended up in there in the end. I made it before going to bed and ate it on some breakfast burritos the next morning and the flavours after sitting in the fridge were more bold. I suggest making it ahead of time. Definitely an addition to any Tex-Mex table. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Perfect! The only change I would make is to add more chipotle as stated in the recipe. This worked great as a topper on our chicken fajitas. As a matter of preference I used sour cream in place of the creme fraiche. Read More
