What is avocado crema?
Avocado Crema is pretty much just a creamy avocado sauce, usually flavored with cilantro. It’s a similar concept to sour cream and you use it on a lot of the same things like tacos, taco salads, enchiladas, nachos, etc.
How do you make avocado crema?
Basically, you put avocado, fresh herbs, garlic, lime or lemon juice in a food processor and blend until it’s creamy. I make mine with avocado, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, almond milk, and jalapeno.
