Avocado Lime Crema

Guacamole has always been one of my favorite toppings to serve with Mexican food, but what's even better is this creamy, tangy avocado cream sauce.

I absolutely love this recipe. It's one of my family's favorite Mexican sauce recipes and is guaranteed to add so much to everything you add it to. Try it with eggs for breakfast, tacos for lunch, or steak for dinner... the list goes on!
What is avocado crema?
Our Avocado Creme recipe is a mixture of ripe avocados, fresh lime juice, Greek yogurt or sour cream, garlic powder, black pepper, and sea salt.
It's inspired by Mexican crema recipes, which are thicker and more rich than regular sour cream, similar to crème fraîche. The cool flavor of crema makes it a perfect pairing for spicy dishes.
The difference between our Avocado crema recipe and Mexican crema is in the ingredients used, but both are smooth and richly flavorful sauces. The addition of avocado and seasoning makes this Avocado cream sauce stand out!
What to serve with Avocado Crema?
- Mexican beef recipes like Carne Picada go well with avocado lime crema

The creamy avocado sauce is light and smooth with a refreshing, tangy flavor. That makes it ideal for serving with dishes that pack a lot of heat, or traditional Mexican foods that pair well with avocado.
